Challenging times often bring out the best in individuals, pushing them to new heights fueled by a surge of adrenaline and, occasionally, flashes of anger. This was evident in the recent Bangladesh versus Nepal clash where Tanzim Hasan Sakib exchanged words with Nepal captain Rohit Paudel. 

Winning the toss and electing to field first, Nepal bowlers left the Bangladesh top-order clueless with the powerplay score reading 30/4. Eventually, the Tigers were bundled for 106 before their bowlers put up a scintillating show in the second innings with Tanzim Hasan Sakib claiming a four-for with the new ball. The slinky-actioned bowler bowled 21 dots in his four overs including two maidens but the spotlight switched to a heated exchange with Nepal Captain Rohit Paudel.

Following a couple of scalps in the third over, Bangladesh skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto set up an attacking field with a couple of slips for new batter, Paudel. The Nepal captain was beaten on the outside edge on the fifth delivery, followed by a soft-handed push to point on the last ball before Sakib starred down the batter, initiating a heated exchange. Paudel lost his cool and strolled down towards the bowler and both individuals exchanged words before the non-striker and Rishad Hossain separated the two. Although Sakib had the last laugh in the next over, outsmarting Paudel with a widish delivery, the war of words became the talk of the town in the Twitterverse for quite some moment.

Ohh wait!!! what was this?
