Things often get heated up when India take on Bangladesh on the 22 yards. The matters got worsened in ICC World Cup 2015 where India defeated their neighbours quite comprehensively. Indian opener Rohit Sharma played a brilliant knock. But Bangladeshi fans erupted over a controversial decision by the umpire. Since then, the fans have started to use their photoshop skills to disrespect India.
Their skill came into fame when a picture of Bangladeshi pacer holding the head of the then Indian captain Mahendra Singh went viral. That picture received a huge backlash and was subjected to ridicule and mockery. Now, after a couple of years, another chance lies ahead of Bangladesh. On Thursday, they will be facing India at Edgbaston, Birmingham for the semi-final match of ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

In a fan-made picture, a tiger is seen chasing a dog. Bangladeshi team is often referred to as ‘The Tigers’. Bangladeshi flag is accordingly draped around the tiger. What is disrespectful for the Indians is that an Indian flag is draped around the dog.
Tiranga is draped by on the dog who is being chased by the tiger and is on the verge of being preyed by the tiger. This picture was uploaded on Facebook by a Bangladeshi fan.
