Mumbai: While team India is mourning their loss in the T20 World Cup semi-final against West Indies by 7 wickets, Bangladeshi wicket keeper Mushfiqur Rahim couldn’t contain his happiness on India’s defeat and took to Twitter to express his joy.
Just after India's defeat, the Bangladesh player tweeted, "Happiness is this....!!! #ha ha ha..!!!! India lost in the semifinal." He attached a picture of Dhoni with the tweet, which he later deleted.
He did not stop at that and posted another picture via his Facebook account.
Bangladesh had lost the group stage tie against India by one run in a dramatic innings.
Indian fans did not take Rahim’s words too kindly and took the opportunity to troll him back.
Mushfiqur I thought always looked a 10-year old. Now he tweets like one too. https://t.co/pNBqq83PuG— Subash Jayaraman (@thecricketcouch) March 31, 2016
Mushfiqur celebrating India's loss. Being a Bangladeshi this is the only way he can celebrate in a World Cup. https://t.co/nJ9taCCoAr— .... (@ynakg) March 31, 2016
I did puke right before the last ball. Should have left some for Mushfiqur Rahim.— TheBlackMagicWoman (@aanchalator) March 31, 2016
Mushfiqur Rahim is so classless he looks like a Marxist utopia #IndvsWI— TheFrustratedIndian (@FrustIndian) March 31, 2016
It was not long before Rahim deleted the tweet and the Facebook post and apologised "for some harsh words".
