Cricket, a gentleman’s game, can also turn ugly at times and a similar incident took place after Bangladesh’s historic win over India in the 2020 U19 World Cup finals in Potchefstroom on Sunday.
Moments after the Bangladesh Tigers clinched their maiden U-19 World Cup title an altercation among a few players from both the Bangladesh and India camp was witnessed at the Senwes Park.
As soon as the match ended, it became tense with Bangladeshi players rushing to the ground and most of them still displaying aggressive body language.
In fact, one India player rushed to confront and pushed a Bangladeshi player who had allegedly used a cuss word at him and then India’s coach Paras Mhambrey went ahead to calm his boys.
Cross checked the stump-mic audio when Bangladesh got the winning run. You can clearly make out the choicest abuses

As of now, it’s not yet sure which team initiated the ugly episode, but it has definitely tarnished the reputation of the game.
