One of the integral part of the modern day cricket is the way the cricketers have come up with their celebration moves. Over the last few years, there have been some very weird celebrations on the cricket field. Among such unusual moves is the Naagin dance, which the Bangladesh team players had come up with earlier this season. They came up with the move when they were finding success on the field.
Now, when they are failing miserably to get over the line in crunch games, they are watching themselves get trolled by the opposition players who come up with the same Naagin dance. A recent example of the same was seen when Afghanistan played Bangladesh in the third and the final T20I of the three-match series. The ‘hosts’, Afghanistan, beat Bangladesh by 1 run in the finals to whitewash them 3-0.
After their herculean effort, some of the players of the Afghanistan side were seen doing the Naagin dance. The player who was prominently seen on the frames performing the move was Mohammad Shahzad. The veteran cricketer is known for his free spirited nature on and off the field. He continued to do so and had no hesitation in trolling the Bangladeshi side with a bit of dance
Troubled series for Bangladesh
The series proved to be a disastrous outing for the Bangladeshi team. In the first game, they bowled first and ended up conceding 167 runs. In response, they bundled out for 122 with Rashid Khan scalping 3/13 in the game. In the next outing, they batted first and could only muster 134 on the board. Yet again, it was Rashid Khan who bagged 4/12 in the innings to trigger a batting collapse.
Afghanistan had an easy run chase with Samiullah Shenwari and Mohammad Nabi coming up with excellent batting display. In the final game, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah scored 40s in the run chase of 145 and had almost crossed the line for their side. But Rashid Khan successfully defended 9 in the final over to seal the match for his side.
