The U19 boys of Bangladesh have scripted history after they defeated India in the recently concluded U19 World Cup (WC) final held at Potchefstroom in South Africa. This was the first-ever U19 title win for the ‘Bangla Tigers’.
Senior players congratulated the youngsters on the enormous victory. Mushfiqur Rahim, on Wednesday, went a step forward and posted a picture of him saluting the U19 boys for creating history.
The wicket-keeper batsman uploaded a picture where he can be seen standing in front of the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. He captioned the photo and wrote, “Ma shaa Allah…proud of you brothers.”
The U19 boys were welcomed by thousands of fans on the streets when their heroes returned home. The country’s sports minister Zahid Ahsan and the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan honored the players and support staff with flower garlands at the airport.
As per BCB chief, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will also hold a public reception for the players in Dhaka’s sprawling Suhrawardi Udyan park next week.
