India’s Under-19 Cricket Team Manager Anil Patel has said that the ICC has taken a serious view of the aggressive celebrations by Bangladesh players after their World Cup triumph. He said ICC will be reviewing the footage of the final game’s last few minutes.
Some Bangladeshi players got carried away while celebrating their historic three-wicket win over India in the final at Potchefstroom. While their captain Akbar Ali apologized for the unfortunate incident, his Indian counterpart Priyam Garg said, their reaction was dirty.
Patel claimed that match referee Graeme Labrooy met him and expressed regret at what transpired on the field.
Even when the match was on, the Bangladesh players were overly aggressive while fielding and their lead pacer Shoriful Islam sledged the Indian batsmen after every delivery.
As soon as the match ended, it became tense with Bangladeshi players rushing to the ground and displaying aggressive body language. The two teams nearly came to blows before the situation was defused by the coaching staff and on-field officials.
