Bangladesh fans have slammed Pakistan for using their country’s national flag during a training session. During the ICC T20 World Cup, Pakistan head coach had started this practice to motivate the players. Pakistan won five consecutive games in the tournament before losing to Australia in the semi-final.
The Men in Green will now play in Bangladesh. Meanwhile, the Bangladesh fans took to social media to slam the visiting team.
“Go back Pakistan. Bangladesh should stop the series. Ban any kind of Pakistani flag in Bangladesh,” one user wrote.
“Different countries have come to #Bangladesh innumerable times, many matches have been played by practicing. But neither party needed to practice burying their national flag on the ground. But why did #Pakistan do that…What does it indicate,” another user wrote.
“Pakistan started preparation ahead of three-match T20I and two-match Test series against Bangladesh. Pakistan team hoists a national flag there– surely a new scene here. Cannot remember any team doing it here in recent past. Finally some int’l cricket in Mirpur,” one of the fans wrote.
