Cricketers from across the world have a strong fanbase in India in comparison to any other nation. It is all because of the Indian Premier League that has reduced the gap between the fans and their favorite cricketers. However, sometimes cricket enthusiasts commit cheeky activities like crossing the boundary ropes in order to meet their idols in between the live match. However, this time a young Indian teenager turned into a security guard to meet Shakib Al Hasan.
Bangladesh cricket team is currently on their tour to India, and it was almost confirmed that Shakib Al Hasan will be the part of the squad that will travel to its neighboring country for a cricketing banter. But, a backdated ban imposed on the ace all-rounder set him apart from taking part in any game of the series.
Indian fan idolizes Shakib Al Hasan
Among Indian fans, one fan named Bishal Rajput, who is currently studying and also works in order to earn his pocket money, is also a big follower of cricket and when he came to know about Tigers’ coming to India for playing T20I and Test series, the Indian fan thought that it is a big opportunity for him to meet Shakib.
So, he took up the role of the guard at Holkar Stadium in Indore, where the first Test is scheduled to be played. But, later on, he came to know that Shakib is not coming because he has been banned. Also, he recited the fact that he took the role of guarding just as a part-timer in order to watch the Bangladesh ace all-rounder playing.
“Shakib came to India to play IPL. He also came to Indore. I came to see the game by buying a ticket. Some time ago I heard Shakib had been undergoing some problems. Can he not play anymore? He is a very good cricketer, I like him very much. Among all Bangladeshi cricketers, I know him very well. It will be great if he comes. You know, I took a security job here as a part-timer. Just to watch the game of him.” Bishal Rajput said as quoted by BD Crictime.
However, Bangladesh gave a tough fight to the hosts in the recently concluded T20I series and now they are gearing up for the first Test that will be played in Indore starting from November 14th.
