Cristiano Ronaldo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is idolized by many sports personalities. On Thursday, Bangladesh clashed to Australia for the ICC World Cup 2019 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham where Bangladesh player Soumya Sarkar shows that he also admires Cristiano Ronaldo.
In the match, Soumya Sarkar bagged a three-wicket haul against Australia. After getting the crucial wicket of Aaron Finch in the 21st over, Soumya celebrated in the signature Cristiano Ronaldo style. However, Soumya Sarkar’s celebration was nowhere near to the leap, height, and posture that Christiano Ronaldo creates while pulling off his original style.
However, the International Cricket Council (ICC), compared Sarkar to Ronaldo with distinct images and asked fans, “Separated at birth?” The tweet did not go well among the fans who claimed that it was an insult to “Cristiano Ronaldo”. Some of the fans even wanted to meet the admin and advised to immediately delete the tweet.
In the game, Soumya’s performance was very well as he got the crucial wickets of David Warner, Finch and Usman Khawaja turning out three for 58. But the Australian’s had already stamped their authority in the match.
Holders Australia went on to post 381/5 in their stipulated 50 overs. Bangladesh gave a tough fight scoring 333/8 but could not win the match to Australia by only 48 runs. In the World Cup 2019 points table, Bangladesh is fifth with five points from six matches.
