Bangladesh has reached finals of Asia Cup T20 and will be contesting with Indian team at Sher-e-Bangla National stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka on Sunday. Well, it seems that Bangladeshi are overjoyed with this and out of excitement, one fan created a morphed pic in which you can see Taskin Ahmed, fast bowler of Bangladesh, holding the chopped head of Indian captain MS Dhoni.
This pic is going viral over the web and social media and is no doubt a condemnable act on the part of Bangladesh. What’s more, cricket is merely a game which should not be related to nationalism and must be played with the sports spirit. But Bangladesh seems to be lacking this essential quality and that’s why such pics made by their people circulate over social media.
When Ravi Shastri, director of Indian cricket team, was asked questions about this photoshopped pic of Taskin Ahmed and MS Dhoni, he replied in a subtle manner that he and Indian players don’t read newspaper at the time of match and focus merely on playing cricket. It’s the work of reporters, they read it, think about it and make their own assessment but Indian team has got nothing to do with the matter.

This is not the first time when Bangladesh has done something like this as in past too, they created a pic of Mustafizur’s cutter that showed half shaved heads of all the Indian batsmen.
