India's ICC WT20 exit: Mushfiqur Rahim taunts, later apologizes after backlash

Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim on Thursday mocked the Indian team after their shock defeat in the ICC World Twenty20 at the hands of West Indies.

Taking to Twitter, Rahim shared a TV snapshot of MS Dhoni speaking during the post-match interview and captioned it, "Happiness is this...!!! ha ha ha..!! India lost in the semi-final..."

This post was not taken too well by the Indian fans who were disappointed after their team's defeat.

Facing a severe criticism for his offensive post, the 27-year-old later apologized for his tweet and then deleted it.

Rahim was probably hurt after his team's loss to India by 1-run in the group stage of the tournament. He probably thought Darren Sammy's side had avenged Bangladeshi team and fans. However, little did he realize that such behavior was inappropriate for an international cricketer.
