Bangladesh fans did not like one bit when their captain Mahmudullah Riyadh was “heckled” by pumped up Scotland fans after the former opened their ICC T20 World Cup campaign with a shocking 6-run loss in qualifiers in Muscat. The incident happened as a dejected Mahmudullah sat down to chat with media post-match.
The skipper was answering a few questions explaining their loss before Scottish fans intervened. To his credit, the Bangladesh captain kept his composure and waited for the right moment to resume speaking. The now-viral video was shared on the microblogging site Twitter by the official handle of Cricket Scotland.
The video that was shared by Scotland Cricket had a cheeky caption. “Sorry we will keep it down next time,” they tweeted. Mahmudullah wasn’t in the best of moods as Bangladesh had crumbled to a painful loss despite reducing Scotland to a precarious 53 for six at one stage. The skipper has called for an urgent introspection following the team’s loss.

“Yeah, when you can’t chase 140, there needs to be a look-in, need to correct the mistakes,” a disappointed Bangladesh captain said after the match. “We still need to be positive and figure out where we made mistakes, and not try to repeat them. Beautiful wicket to bat on, fantastic ground and crowd, we need to pull our socks up and play better cricket,” he said.
While the fiasco might have been amusing to the Scottish, Bangladesh fans objected to the “unprofessional” and “immature” behaviour exhibited by the winning team fans. This was when some Twitter users decided to take a dig back at the disgruntled fans.
Here are some of the reactions:

Make it, even more, louder than this one next time. It's your fuckin' right to do everything to enjoy your victory. Do it even against PAK or IND after beating 'em. A real cricket lover will always love associate team fans cheering in & outside the stadium. Keep upsetting!!! 👏🏼♥️
