Mushfiqur Rahim Bangladesh MS Dhoni India World T20 2016
Mushfiqur Rahim was over the moon after India were knocked out of the World T20 by the West IndiesIANS

Mushfiqur Rahim has always been a little impulsive, unable to control the emotions on the cricket field, with the perfect example being when he did a little celebrator jig after hitting consecutive fours off the final Hardik Pandya over in the India vs Bangladesh World T20 Group 2 match. The Bangladesh wicketkeeper would have regretted that little celebration in hindsight after Bangladesh, spectacularly lost three wickets in three balls to hand India a one-run victory.

Probably, still smarting from that defeat, which knocked Bangladesh out and kept India in the running for the semifinals, Mushfiqur acted, well, let's just say, unlike a professional, by tweeting his glee at India's exit in the semifinals to the West Indies.

"Happiness is this...!!! ha ha ha..!! India lost in the semi-final...," he wrote on his Twitter account, followed by three smileys and a picture of MS Dhoni talking in the post-match interview.

The tweet was expectedly deleted a little while later after backlash from the India fans, who would have been finding it difficult, anyways, to cope with the defeat to WI, without having to handle a Bangladesh international cricketer – a former captain at that -- rub their faces in it.

Following the backlash from Indian and several other fans as well, Mushfiqur backtracked with this tweet. "Sorry to all of you I am a big West Indies supporter but anyway sorry again for some harsh words...!!!!"

Now, it would have been believable that he is a West Indies supporter and celebrating a fabulous win for Darren Sammy and co. had his tweet been along "Well done West Indies, what a chase, what a win!" lines.

But, that was not the case was it.
