Move over ‘Gangnam Style’, it’s time for ‘snake dance’!
It seems Mushfiqur Rahim’s ‘snake dance’ after Bangladesh’s historic win over Sri Lanka has become the latest rage in cricket. Rahim bagged the Man of the Match for his breathtaking 72 off 35 balls. Chasing a steep target of 215 in 20 overs, Bangladesh crossed the mark with two balls to spare. The win also means that they stay in the hunt for a place in the finals in the ongoing Nidahas Trophy. The 30-year-old struck 4 sixes and 5 boundaries in the high-octane game. Rahim complimented his knock with a never-seen-before celebration, wherein he did the famous ‘Nagin’ dance. On hitting the winning runs, an Rahim was so over-joyed and ecstatic that he broke into this unique dance.
Here is the video of the celebration —

“To be honest, from the beginning we thought we could win. Tamim and Liton gave us a good start. Then Mushy was outstanding,” Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah said after the win.
Bangladesh winning the match means that it is still a 3-way fight for a place in the finals. Every team has the opportunity of making the cut.
