The photo from Getty Images shows Bangladeshi fans watching the live broadcast of the World Cup match inside a wholesale market. This is because of an ongoing nationwide strike and blockade in the country. The strike was called by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP)-led alliance in Dhaka. The violence has seen injuries and deaths in the country.

But these moments of distress didn’t stop the spirit of the fans who find a way to watch the crucial match which Bangladesh won and book a berth in the quarter-final of the tournament knocking England out. (Twitter reactions: England knocked out of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015)
