Frozen Tigers, Mannequin Challenge
Waves crashed in the background, sea breeze substituted for that catchy song as the members of the Bangladesh national cricket team completed the Mannequin Challenge at a picturesque beach in New Zealand yesterday.
The Mannequin Challenge is a viral Internet video trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a moving camera films them, usually with the song "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background.
In the video posted by Taskin Ahmed on his Facebook page, Mashrafe and co are seen frozen in their poses, the good, the bad and the downright hilarious poses while the wind howls around them.
If the Tigers were to be immortalised at Madame Tussauds wax musem, some of them, especially Test captain Mushfiqur Rahim may want to reconsider his pose.
Tigers attended a conditioning camp in Australia till December 18. They will play three ODIs, three T20Is and two Tests against the Black Caps.
