    [VIDEOS] "Believe me it seems that we are playing the match in Pakistan" : Fakhar Zaman

    "The wickets in Bangladesh are very different from those that we find in Pakistan, its a little difficult to bat earlier on in the innings as the ball grips initially and the fast-bowlers also get support; So Rizwan and I had planned to take our time after Babar's wicket had fallen because once we have a 20-30 run partnership, it becomes easier to play shots; So we were were successful in executing our plans were able to make the runs needed"

    "Bangladesh bowling is very good, and they are very effective in their home conditions and it suits them as they have the good spinners and fast-bowlers too, so we have to play good cricket which we have done so far and will also do in the final game of the series"

    "I am finding it difficult to believe the support we have got from the crowd. I came here in 2018 and I did not see so much crowd support for Pakistan then, so we would like to thank everyone who is supporting us here; Believe me it seems that we are playing the match in Pakistan. So whenever we take a wicket or play a good shot, we get the same support that the Bangladesh players get when they do the same - in fact, even their crowd is supporting us which is a great thing"

    "Since the time, Babar Azam has taken charge of the side, he has set standards in batting and fielding for us and we are all trying to meet those standards, and I am doing the same"

    "So the presence of Babar as captain is making a big difference. As you can see, we won in South Africa as well and played really well in the UAE also, and here in Bangladesh we have done well too; So if you win away from home, that speaks a lot about you. With the help of the Team Management, we are gelling well as a team which is a great thing and I hope and pray that things will only get better for us in the future"

    BD has ALWAYS supported PAK even in INDO PAK matches in BD majority of the crowd has always supported PAK.

    The WC QF in 2011 was very special. I still remember the whole stadium cheering for PAK against WI.

    Thats what you call proper cricket fans.
    Hats off to everyone there!
    More or less, all fans give a good round to the opposistion players...however, I do remember a game in UAE involving New Zealand, where the "fans ko saanp soog jata tha", everytime they hit a boundary...haha.

    The Bangladesh Cricket Board officials believe there has been no severe breach of the bio-secured bubble after a fan ran into the field during the second T20I of the three-match series between Pakistan and hosts Bangladesh at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Saturday.

    In the 13th over of the Pakistan innings, the game got interrupted after a fan named Rasel from the Northern Stand dodged the security and the group of groundsmen at SBNCS and ran to the center of the field.

    The individual before being taken out of the field by the BCB security touched Mustafizur Rahman’s boot following which the match officials took the Bangladesh bowler off the game.

    It was later learnt that Mustafizur was also suffering pain in his side during his second over of bowling in the game.

    The intruder touches Mustafizur's boot whilst being told not to by umpire Tanvir Ahmed as Mahmudullah looks on in amusement AFP

    The Bangladesh bowler will be reassessed again Sunday and a decision will be made on whether he will be match-fit for the third and final T20I.

    The fan, Rasel from Comilla, was taken to the nearest police station and it is understood that the BCB officials were preparing for legal action against the individual.

    The game continued but there was concern if the incident breached the bio-secured protocol of the players and officials.

    BCB chief physician Dr. Debashish Chowdhury is confident that the event did not hamper the safety of the members who are inside the bubble.

    “The Covid manager is looking into the matter but what I can understand is the contact was very brief and there is no chance of contamination. There was no incident that he [fan] sneezed close to the player,” informed Debashish to the media Saturday.

    “There are criteria of close contact so based on that it [the fan going close to Mustafizur] was not a close contact. But still, we can have everyone in the bubble undergo a Covid-19 test [Sunday], that might not give a perfect result as it takes at least three to five days for someone to get infected. But still I do not think there will be any affect as the contact was not very close as we all saw,” the BCB official added.

    The Covid-19 protocol management was yet to decide the steps going forward.

    There was worry in the cricket fraternity if the touring Pakistan team would raise concerns with the incident but nothing such had happened when this report was filed.

    It is understood that the tourists have maintained mutual understating with the host board on the issue.

    Brilliant atmosphere by Bangladeshi fans. Their youth are probably warming upto Pak cricket now.

    The best thing we have gained from this series are the Athar Ali Khan memes on social media though.

    I was shocked at just how much support the Pakistan team has been getting from the Bangladesh fans. Normally in the past there was pin drop silence when a Pakistani bowler took a wicket or if a Pakistani batter hit a boundary.

    That's why regardless of some fans, I like their team and their nation.

    Compare them to Afghanistan and its night and day.

    Great to see. Hope they get another good reception in Pakistan too.

    I think it also has to do with a more likeable Prime Minister, Imran Khan has acknowlegded the mistakes Pakistan made in the erstwhile East Pakistan and in addition to that Bangladesh-India relations have been at an all time low recently.

    This. Imran has raised a lot of voice for Muslims at international levels so it has helped raise the level of Pakistani leadership in the entire Muslim world.

    That's fine, they can continue to be a venue for cricket, much like the UAE.

    Just channel the endless funds to their team to somebody more deserving.

    The actual power in Bangladesh is Hasina, and not cricket fans. After her father Mujib, Hasina is the most pro-India leader Bangladesh has ever had. In recent times, sometimes there is friction between Bangladesh and India due to actions taken by the BJP government against illegal immigrants, but Hasina and Modi understand that good relations are a win-win for the two countries. Hasina also realizes that Pakistan cannot do anything tangible to help Bangladesh, it is too far away and has infuriated the West with its support for the Taliban.

    Hasina has pretty much neutered the opposition, and given her successful management of the economy will remain in control for a long time.

    I will appreciate Indian posters, with little knowledge or information, to refrain from commenting on Bangladesh politics, or on the status of her leaders. Hasina might be pro-India, but she was elected by the people of her constituency. She will listen whatever her people desire for regardless her or others feelings.

    As the PM of the nation, she is matured enough to understand what is good and bad for her and her people. And she would do the needful to make sure whatever necessary for the development of the nation. At the same time, she understand the mentality of her people, can decide with whom to keep good relation and not to keep relation with(case in point relationship with China amidst huge opposition from India).

    No matter whatever India or her politicians wants, Bangladesh will do whatever She wants to do.

    You guys might not think more into this, but I think Bangladeshi crowd came all out to support Pakistan is just to **** off India and their media. Otherwise even couple of years ago no body would show any support against their own nation.

    I have enough knowledge of Bangladeshi politics, it isnít that esoteric. Also, Hasinaís attitude towards India definitely is something for Indians to have an opinion about.

    Pakistan and China are very different.

    It is this condescending attitude, that has made people of Bangladesh despising India more and more in the recent time. Otherwise they used to have friendly attitude towards India even few years ago.

    All the old and patriotic leaders of Awami league have turned against India recently, due to which there is a shift towards China. A big part of Awami league for their own good, have decided to distance themselves from India, even though another small part is still clinging on India first policy.

    As I said earlier, Bangladesh will do whatever we wants to, regardless whatever opinion you or your politicians have.

    This thread is not for India Bangladesh relations - Some of the comments from Fakhar highlight how much Bangladesh crowds are enjoying watching Pakistan play here despite propaganda by Indian news sources.

    BD obviously has two types of people. One that holds a grudge against Pakistan and one who doesn't.

    So, we can expect to see mixed reactions.

    I personally don't really care about these flag debacles. For me, cricket is the only thing that matters here.

    I do know after talking to a lot of Bangladeshis they have a lot of love for Pakistan - and it has grown exponentially in the last few years too. The younger generation sees things entirely differently from their government and the older generation also doesn't have the kind of angst they used to have.

    But even in the 80s, I remember Pakistan hockey team against India getting rousing reception in Dhaka, much more partisan than playing at their own homes. it was wild.

    And Bangladeshis have been very accommodative this time around too - what with Hassan's gesture, Shaheen's hurling the ball at the batsmen, Nawaz getting out of the way of the ball. All of this only a few years ago would have been national scandals in Bangladesh and Haseena would have been weighing in. A lot has changed back to good times between Pakistan and Bangladesh - some of it to do with what's happening in India but also how Pakistan has positioned itself in the last few years.

    All Pakistan cricket team has to do is not to muck it up on this tour with needless controversies - when the tide of public opinion is so much in their favor. Play hard, play to win, but play fair and leave with respect for the very accommodative hosts.

    The PCB should look to cultivate strong relationships with Bangladesh Cricket. I think we have tried to bully them in the past and look down on them but they can be strong allys and despite the lack of success with their team the fans continue to be passionate about the game.

    According to sources, the Pakistan squad was left "surprised" after they did not get a trophy despite winning the series.

    However, a spokesperson of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) told the management of the Pakistan team that they would hand over the trophy after the conclusion of the Test series.

    That was odd and unprofessional.

    BCB should be better than this.

    I think that Bangladesh thought they would beat Pakistan in the T20 and lose the Tests and so scheduled the trophy ceremony to be at the same time so it looks like both teams won something.

    LOL. That would be funny if that's the case.

    I hope this blunder is a one-off thing.

    No, I don't care, sorry. Not going to hold your hand through google searches. Plenty of stuff out there. A few things were posted in the other thread too (the one about the flag during training).

    And whilst at it check #shamikifarzitrolling. Started by paid for trolls. Their handles were uncovered to have been in existence the day before the match. Also has their locations and occupations.

    Oh it was more than reported on. I saw the Indian media crying about it saying 'a controversy has erupted' etc when really it was they who had erupted.

    You can deny it all you want but the Indian obsession with Pakistan is there for all to see.

    I was wondering the same. In fact, we've had a little bit of tension with BD in the past, has there been a turn of events recently or has the support for Pak always been like this? Maybe a BD fan can answer.

    A Bangladeshi supporter of the Pakistan cricket team was allegedly beaten by a group of youths belonging to Muktijoddha Mancha at Sagarika area near Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram city on Friday morning.

    The supporter, aged about 30, was chased and beaten by the youths at about 10:00am, said a witness.

    The first test match between Bangladesh and Pakistan began in Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium on Friday morning.

    Activists of Muktijoddha Mancha took position in front of the stadium from 8:00am to prevent the Bangladeshi supports of Pakistan cricket team in Chattogram, said the organisation’s vice-president Mohammad Hasan.

    Hasan said that the supporter of the Pakistan team was a Bangladesh national but he came by wearing the Pakistan team’s jersey.

    ‘We requested the man to put off the jersey but he refused. Later, he locked in an altercation with us and suddenly tried to flee the spot but he fell in a roadside drain,’ he said.

    The man sought pardon from the drain and promised not to support the Pakistan cricket team anymore, he said.

    The identity of the supporter of the Pakistan cricket team could not be known.

    Pahartoli police station officer-in-charge Md Mostafizur Rahman said that they came to know the incident but none complained to them.

    BNP parliamentarian Md Harunur Rashid faced protests by ruling lawmakers at Jatiya Sangsad Saturday after supporting the Pakistani national cricket team's flag hoisting during a practice session for its ongoing Bangladesh tour.

    "We should keep in mind that they [Pakistan national cricket team] are our guests. Our players also perform in other countries where they too hoist the national flag," said the BNP's member of parliament.

    "But I recently saw an MP delivering hate speech centring the issue," said Harun, which promptly met with protests by the Awami League lawmakers.

    "Why did you invite the team for the Dhaka tour in the first place," the BNP MP told them, adding, "It is not appropriate to be hostile towards a nation. This is not decent for us either."

    Referring to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's 1974-speech at the UN, Harun told the house that Bangabandhu then said Bangladesh, brushing aside the previous animosity, put efforts to re-establish bilateral relations with Pakistan.

    "By pardoning 195 war criminals, we have written a new history of peace and cooperation in the subcontinent. We have shown our sincerity," Harun quoted from Bangabandhu's speech.

    The BNP MP sought "protection" from the speaker as protests from the ruling MPs got louder following the remark.

    "I had been talking about Bangabandhu's speech. If you interrupt here too, what else can I say honourable speaker? I did not say anything on my own, I just read out his speech," claimed Harun.

    State Minister for Shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury responded to the BNP lawmaker by saying "Harun's support for Pakistan revealed his original political lineage".

    "By speaking for the war criminals, he has proven again that BNP does not believe in the spirit of the liberation war," said the state minister.

    He said, "BNP founder Ziaur Rahman not only pampered the Bangabandhu killers but also damaged the country's constitution to introduce Pakistani rules in Bangladesh. BNP is doing the same politics which the opposition parliamentarian has just revealed before the house."
