Adelaide was the most desired location to be in for every Bangladeshi on the 9th of March due to the eve of Bangladesh tigers bidding farewell to the English lions from the world cup. South Australia is best know in Australia as the festival state and the hub of festivities were right at the Adelaide oval on that very day. Bangladesh supporters came in numbers with the flares of red and green to back the Tigers on the field. Even the Barmy Army were not enough to oust the jubilation out of the Bangladeshi supporters in the Adelaide Oval. As soon as Rubel Hossain uprooted the stumps out of the ground the entire stadium erupted with joy. Some emotions ran so high that a few tears of happiness were shed and why should it not be as it was Bangladesh’s first Quarter Final berth in the history of the Cricket world cup. This picture was taken right before the post-match presentation ceremony. The Bangladesh players came down to the supporters to pay homage for their unconditional support throughout the humid day at the Adelaide oval. The month of March always is the month of glory for the Tigers. May the Tigers fight with all their might in the Quarter final stage of the world cup and bring back glory again to the cricket crazy nation, Bangladesh!
