Bangladesh's wicketkeeper-batsman faced severe backlash on Thursday night after he trolled the team India for their shocking exit from the T20 cricket World Cup at the hands of West Indies.
Earlier last week, Bangladesh faced a humiliating loss at a group stage match to India by one run. While the entire country mourned the loss at Wankhede yesterday, Rahim took to social media to express his happiness at India's defeat.
This is what he posted on Twitter.
He also took to his Facebook page and expressed his joy.
This didn't really go well with desi fans mourning India's defeat.

One refreshing thing coming out of Rahim's tweet is that they have Colour TVs in Bangladesh.— KK #Halwai (@ket25) March 31, 2016
