Default The "Choop Kor" Celebration

Anyone notice the Tiger Cubs unveiled a new celebration just for this game? They kept putting their fingers to their lips in the universal "shush" gesture. Was it an internal thing like "lets not get carried away" or was it a gesture meant for a wider audience?

It's nothing new, soccer players and WI players do it all the time.

You dont have to create a thread for it.

Pretty sure it was to signal "not to get carried away" and look forward to our next Bangladesh A 3-day test match against Zimbabwe in 2039. :p

Our celebrations have always been on the "less-cultured" side of a certain spectrum. This is not to say that players from other nations don't have "less-cultured" celebrations. I am only focusing on BD players.


I think part of it comes from spending a lot of time on the streets. Some of our players have grown up in large towns and cities, where the streets are largely populated by sparsely-educated shysters looking to earn money, older trades-men losing on their way out, a few lucky ones with good exam results and maybe a job, and whoever the rest constitute. This is not necessarily an environment where cultured thought and discussions on literature are found common-place. It is also not an environment where true devouts in search of God can be found. Poverty have rendered time "valuable" and "limited".



We believe we have a behavioral coach/therapist assigned to the national team.

Regardless of our personal responses to BD players' celebration - the U19 team played with discipline through the final, and throughout the tournament.

As long as they stay away from the nagin dance, I am fine.

I donโ€™t find anything wrong with their celebration as long as they win the matches. I have seen far better uglier celebrations then this from different sports from different countries, itโ€™s all about how one is finding it fit in his own taste.

I would say, we need to be more modest and respectful when we celebrate. Probably Our boys were taunted and sledged badly by the opponents during the match but its all part of the game. It looks really nasty when you go in front of opponent batsmen's face after dismissal, or act silly after the match is over. People are talking more about our offensive, rude behavior than our achievement. Although to be honest, I could care less what people (Indian/Pakistani) think about us, but still I believe That's not how its not suppose to be. We have won the world cup for the very first time, but all are talking about after match incidence. BD team is very much hated because of our nasty celebrations. Need to address this fast.

^ Agreed. Humility is next on our long list of things that need to be taught.

I think once we're used to shutting up the opposition by winning, things will change. We're still achieving many "Firsts" as a team at all levels and this world cup is no different. Often opposition make fun of us off camera etc. I remember Mashrafe mentioning an incident during 2008 Asia Cup in Pakistan where some members from one of the opposition teams (he didn't mention the player) made some offensive comments to the BD players while in the hotel swimming pools. I wasn't able to dig up the source by I distinctly remember reading this.

Point is, we're basically always made fun of, especially by India and Pakistan supporters. The players obviously feel it too and naturally want to return the favour. Once we start winning more tournaments and earn respect, we won't try and snatch it from our opponents anymore.

^ If they had any shame, they would work hard and improve their skills to shut them up with performance rather than just do enough to seal his spot for the next few matches.

I agree, our post match celebration will improve if we keep on winning. Winning is a habit, and players will stop doing nagin dance if we keep on winning
