BAN vs ZIM: Mushfiqur Rahim discloses the reason behind his ‘dragon’ celebration

Bangladesh’s star batsman Mushfiqur Rahim slammed an unbeaten 203 to reach his Test career’s third double ton on Day 3 of the only Test against Zimbabwe at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. It was his second double century against the Chevrons, which came just two years back when he smashed an unbeaten 219 at the same venue. His first double hundred came against Sri Lanka in 2013.

After hitting the double ton, Rahim celebrated in a very unique style that grabbed maximum eyeballs. He imitated a dragon with his mouth wide open, eyes popping out, and hands positioned like claws.

Later, the wicket-keeper batsman revealed the reason behind his weird celebration. Rahim disclosed that his son loves dragons, so when he reached the landmark, he made a gesture for him.

“The celebration was for my son. He loves dragons so much, he likes this posture. So I did it for him,” said Rahim.


The tourists scored 265 in their first innings with Craig Ervine smashed a hundred. In reply, the hosts declared their first innings at 560-6 with skipper Mominul Haque (132) scoring a ton and Rahim (203) slamming a double.

At the end of fourth day’s play, Zimbabwe have lost their four wickets in their second innings at 87, and they are trailing by 208 runs.
