One of the most well-known faces in the cricket stadium, a die-hard fan of Sachin Tendulkar and Indian cricket team, Sudhir has claimed that he was attacked by Bangladesh fans in Dhaka after India’s loss in the second one-day international on Sunday.
“As soon as I left the stadium, people mobbed me and started snatching the Tricolour, breaking the handle of the flag. Two policemen who were outside the stadium came to my rescue and they escorted me to an auto-rickshaw. But the mob further attacked the auto and tried to break into it. They even hurled stones on the vehicle but luckily the auto was covered completely and I didn’t get hurt,” Sudhir told Cricketnext.
Sudhir travels far and wide with the Indian cricket team and is provided with special passes by the Little Master himself. Sudhir has devoted his life to support the Men In Blue and people recognise him easily owing to his attire and body paint in the form of the tricolour.
Bangladesh on Sunday shocked India and entered the history books of cricket as they beat India in the ongoing ODI series after the visitors lost the second ODI by six wickets to trail 0-2 in the three-match series.
