Bangladesh cricket team's 'naagin dance' was all over the internet after their win against Sri Lanka in the 6th T20I of Nidahas Trophy. However, a blistering cameo by Dinesh Karthik in the final, on Sunday, ensured that they don't repeat it in the final.
Earlier in the game, Sabbir Rahman (77 off 50 balls) helped Bangladesh post 166/8. Yuzvendra Chahal (3/18) and Jaydev Unadkat (2/33) took wickets at regular intervals, but Sabbir kept the scoreboard ticking from one end.
Twitter had ridiculed the infamous celebration of Bangladeshi cricketers. After their loss, not only Indian, but Sri Lankan fans were also seen taunting Bangladesh by imitating 'naagin dance'.
As men in blue took upper hand during the game, even former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar was spotted trying naagin dance in the commentary box.
Here are the tweets:
