Following a host of soul-crushing defeats over the years, the new-look Tigers roared finally courtesy of the partnership between Soumya Sarkar  and Mushfiqur Rahim that laid the platform before the skipper joined the latter at the crease to fittingly redeem the brainfreeze of Bangalore 2016.

At smog-soaked Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, Bangladesh opened a new chapter of history thrashing top-notch India for the first-ever time in their T20 international cricket book, the victory was something very special for Bangladeshi cricket fans at home and abroad.

Fans expressed their outburst and delight that raised a wave storm of jubilation on social media especially Twitter trimmed with their eruption in praising the Tigers. Well-known cricketers and commentators joined with the Tigers’ fan part and took their twitter handle to heap praises on Bangladesh and Mushfiqur Rahim whose fabulous 60 not out piloted Bangladesh to taste the rare victory against India on their territory.

Reminiscing Bangladesh’s wafer-thin margin (one-run) defeat to India in Bangalore during the 2016 World T20, former West Indies great Ian Bishop congratulated Tigers and its mainstay Mushfiqur Rahim on their biggest success.

 “Many narratives in that match-winning knock from Mushfiqur Rahim. Amongst other things, it will help him to somewhat exorcise the ghost of 2016. Congrats @BCBtigers” wrote Ian Bishop, who is a running commentator.

Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle wrote on his Twitter handle, “Mushfiqur Rahim averages significantly higher against India than the others. He rode his luck today to produce another masterly finish.”

BCCI President and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly praised Bangladesh also and wrote, “Thank you to both the teams to play this game… well done Bangladesh.”

 “What an amazing team performance under tremendous pressure! Congrats boys! You made the entire nation proud,” Shakib Al Hasan told unloading a post in his verified facebook page.

Indian player Manoj Tiwary and former India fast bowler Irfan Pathan also showered praises on Team Bangladesh and wrote on their respective twitter handle.

“Shocking result for us tonight against Bangladesh team. It does happen in the game but there are so many areas to look into and improve on. Today’s game was an eye opener for the people who all think experiences can be bought in the market #INDvBA,” Tiwary wrote.

“Top innings from Mushfiqur Rahim but I am looking forward to India’s comeback in the next two matches,” Irfan Pathan wrote.
