Indian fans are always eager to celebrate their team’s victory, especially if it is a World Cup match. India beat Bangladesh by a close margin of five runs in their 20-20 World Cup 2022 on Wednesday, and the celebrations began instantly.
Following the victory, Indian fans mocked the Bangladesh team by imitating the latter’s infamous “Naagin Dance”. The dance gained popularity during the 2018 Asia Cup when Bangladesh used it to mock Sri Lanka after defeating them.

The game, which was not expected to be close, turned out to be a thriller in the end. Thanks to the gutsy Bangladesh batters, who came close to completing a historic victory but eventually lost the match by five runs.
Batting first, Indian captain Rohit Sharma was out cheaply for two, but KL Rahul returned to form just in time, slamming 50 off 32 balls to give the Indian team momentum. Suryakumar Yadav jumped on the bandwagon and hit 30 off 16 balls, while Virat Kohli continued his excellent form. In the end, Kohli finished unbeaten on 64 off 44 balls, while Ravichandran Ashwin finished strongly to help India reach a strong total of 184.
Bangladesh responded with a bang, with the talented Litton Das smacking balls all over the field, resulting in a fantastic powerplay for the Tigers. The rain interrupted the match with Bangladesh at 66/0 after seven overs. The Shakib Al Hasan-led side led by 17 runs at the break, according to the DLS method.
Bangladesh was given a new target of 151 in 16 overs after the rain stopped. After the match resumed, the momentum shifted to India’s side, as Rahul fired in a fantastic throw to run-out Das for 60 off 27. Hardik Pandya took two wickets in a single over before the team dismissed the rest of the batting lineup.
With their aggressive intent, Taskin Ahmed and Nurul Hasan kept Bangladesh in contention. With 20 runs needed off six balls, Hasan smashed a six and a four on the second and fourth balls, putting Arshdeep Singh under pressure. However, the pacer held his nerve to help the team win the game.
