Twitter Reaction: Mushfiqur Rahim posts a distasteful tweet to troll India

India were ousted from the WorldT20 after they were beaten comprehensively in a high scoring match by 7 wickets as the Wankhede Stadium. It was obviously heartbreak for MS Dhoni & Co. and the Indians fans.

As everyone was mourning the loss to the Calypso Kings, Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim on Thursday did something which he was not supposed to do as an international cricketer. Rahim posted a distasteful picture taunting the Indian team after their exit from the World T20.


Rahim immediately went to the to social micro-blogging site Twitter and posted a TV grab of MS Dhoni speaking during the post-match interview, captioning it, “Happiness is this…!!! ha ha ha..!! India lost in the semi-final…”

This was unbelievable and at first, it seemed to be a parody account. However, it turned out that it was the Bangladeshi wicket-keeper batsman himself who had done this. There are ways to show your happiness but this was certainly not a good one.

This post did not go down well with the Indian fans. There was an instant outburst on his post and fans reacted to it in their own ways; some were angry while some trolled him. This prompted the 27-year-old to not only deleted his tweet but also apologize soon after.

Fans from Indian and Bangladesh are seen engaged in war of words on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. But, this perhaps the first time that a cricketer has resorted to such immature behaviour.

Incidentally, Rahim one of the main man responsible for his team’s embarrassing loss to India by 1-run in the group stage of the tournament. India loss to Darren Sammy’s men must have satisfied his urge for a revenge over their much superior Asian counterparts.
