Cricket, they say, is a gentleman’s sport but God knows the pitch has seen more than just pleasantries and sportsmanship. And I say this with utmost love, I mean what is a sport without passion?
While sledging and cussing cross the obvious line, there are…let’s call them quips that call for chuckles rather than scorns! You know, actions that are more funny and less brow-raising. Also, you can’t blame a player when victory comes knocking.
And that is exactly why I’m not judging Bangladeshi cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim and his now legendary naagin dance after defeating Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy match. If you’ve missed it, here’s how it looked.

As you can see, Rahim could not control his emotions after hitting the winning runs against Sri Lanka, helping his team chase down a record 215 runs.
Needless to say, the Twitterverse had a lot to say and the memes are too good to go amiss. See for yourself.
Mushfiqur Rahim's NAGIN DANCE FTW! 🐍
