Don't celebrate before you win! Twitter reacts to India's thrilling one-run victory over Bangladesh in World T20


India beat Bangladesh by one run in the group stage Super 10 World T20 match at Chinnaswamy Stadium here in a humdinger of a contest on Wednesday.

Replying to India's 146 for seven in 20 overs, Bangladesh managed to hit 145 for nine in the same number of overs.

The final over of the match witnessed some heart-stopping moments where India, facing a defeat, snatched a victory with the help of two superb catches by Shikhar Dhawan and Ravindra Jadeja on Hardik Pandya's deliveries.

Requiring 11 runs of six balls in the last over, Bangladesh hit a single, two fours and lost three wickets to finally lose by a run.

Naturally, fans took to the social media to express various moods throughout the course of the match, and to share their joy/anguish at the end of the game. Let us take a look at how Twitter reacted to the match in some hand-picked tweets below:

Among the cricketers, Suresh Raina posted a real cheeky message for one Mushfiqur Rahim following the cliffhanger:

 

 

 

 

You know Bangladesh really screwed it up when a South African, that too a former Proteas skipper, trolls them for 'choking'.

 

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not one to miss out on congratulating the 'Men-in-Blue' on such occasions:

 

There were references to Joginder Sharma (who bowled a similar last over in the final of the 2007 event against Pakistan):

 

Folks poked Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Rahim for his early celebrations:

 

 

A few Bangladeshis were 'distraught' to say the least:

 

Some did not waste the opportunity to troll the Bangladeshis for their photoshop skills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that India somehow managed to keep themselves alive in this tournament, let us hope the India-Australia clash turns out to be an equally exciting clash.
