Indian stalwart Rohit Sharma said the Indian cricket team enjoys the advantage of crowd support wherever they play except in Bangladesh, appearing on Facebook Live with Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal.
Bangladesh and India developed a new kind of rivalry since the World Cup Quarterfinal in 2015 when a few erroneous umpiring decision went to India.
The two neighbouring countries played a few finals in the last few years. In all the occasions, India came up victorious, which has pushed the rivalry further.
“We have a super fan base all over the world. We get immense support wherever we play except Bangladesh. We are not used to getting more opponent supporters in the field than us. It’s unbelievable that we don’t get much support in Bangladesh,” Rohit told during the Facebook Live with Tamim.
However, the Indian superstar hailed the cricket-crazy Bangladesh fans for their incredible support and love for their national team.
“I understand how much they enjoy your game, I understand how passionate they are about cricket. Hat’s off to them,” Rohit told Tamim.
Both Tamim and Rohit stressed their concern over the current coronavirus pandemic. Both the stars urged their fans to follow the rules and regulation which the authorities set to contain the spread of the virus.
Like Bangladesh, all the cricketing activities are on hold in India as well. Most of the cricketers from both countries are stuck at home during the pandemic.
