The new U19 World Cup champions Bangladesh displayed great character when they picked up and moved aside the litter thrown on the field during their victory lap.

This was also the first time that Bangladesh has won an ICC event which led to the players, staff, and fans celebrating to the utmost. The celebrations, however, went a little too far that some ugly scenes erupted after the final.

A scuffle broke out between players from both the camps after the celebrations went a little wild, provoking a few members of the Indian side.

Coaches and staff from both sides had to intervene to sort out the issue before it could have tarnished the reputation of the gentleman’s game.

However, the happy Bangladesh players produced something extraordinary when they showed true character by clearing the litter thrown by fans while taking a victory lap around the field.

Twitter showers praise upon young Bangladesh side

From former cricketers to fans around the globe showered their praises on the under-19 Bangladesh side via Twitter after they created history on Sunday.

Here are a few twitter reactions posted right after their huge feat:

Bangladesh, who came into the tournament as dark horses beat South Africa and New Zealand before setting up a summit clash against defending champions India. With this win, Bangladesh remained the only undefeated side in the tournament.

Batting first, India were bundled out for 177 runs. Most of the runs for the Men in Blue was scored by in-form batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal, who made 88 from 121 deliveries.

In reply, Bangladesh sailed to victory after the target was revised to 170 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method after rain interrupted play.

Bangladesh soon soared to victory with 3 wickets in hand and 23 balls to spare.
