Dhaka: Days before the Asia Cup final, Bangladesh fans went overboard with their celebrations taking a dig at the skipper of the Indian team Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The picture that went viral caused a huge outrage on social media.

However, Team Director Ravi Shastri said his team doesn’t pay heed to such incidents and ‘their duty is to perform on the field.’ Dhoni and Co did exactly what the doctor ordered as they notched a thrilling eight-wicket win defeating ‘The Tigers’ in their own backyard on Sunday night.

Bangladesh fans have not been displaying sportsmanship spirit. After Dhoni's men lost a three-match ODI series against Bangladesh last year, a local news paper had published an image of Mustafizur holding a cutter and beneath him was Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan and Ravichandran Ashwin with half shaved heads.
