Dhaka, March 17. After watching a leaked video of premature celebrations featuring Aam Admi Party (AAP) leaders, Bangladesh cricket team on Friday announced its players would be joining the ruling party of Delhi.
Immediately after this announcement, legendary exponent of premature celebration, Mahmudullah, and budding premature celebration star, Shubhagata Hom, left for Delhi to meet AAP supremo, Arvind Kejriwal, and put an official stamp on the proposed deal.
“After watching the video of AAP leaders celebrating their victory in Punjab assembly elections even before counting of votes began, we are sure that our players and these leaders share a brotherly bond. On many occasions in past, our players broke into premature victory celebrations on the cricket field only to face defeat in the end. With AAP too suffering defeat in Punjab elections under a similar circumstance, we seem to be on the same boat now, and therefore, it’s but natural for us to come together and fight our enemies,” said Mushfiqur Rahim, captain of the Tigers, who came to see off Mahmudullah and Hom at the Dhaka International Airport.
Reacting on the development, maverick AAP leader and Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, said he was more than pleased to accept the Tigers’ proposal. “Sab mile hue hain jee (everyone is against us). BJP, Congress, ICC, BCCI, Cricket Australia- all of them are envious of our celebratory skills. Whenever we start celebrating, BJP and Congress tamper with EVMs to stop us from winning elections. The same treatment is meted out to Bangladeshi players on the field. Every time they get into celebratory mood in a match, these big capitalist boards use money power to buy umpires and ask them to ensure Bangladesh’s defeat,” said a broom-wielding Kejriwal.
Meanwhile, when reporters approached Indian Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, for his reactions on this new cross-border alliance, the veteran BJP leader replied in his quintessential style, “Main iski kadi ninda karta hoon (I strongly condemn this).”
