The infamous rivalry with Mahendra Singh Dhoni

During a game in the 2016 Asia Cup, Dhoni had shoulder barged Mustafizur who was standing on his way while running a quick single.

Mustafizur lost balance and fell much to the Bangladeshi fans' dismay. Whether Dhoni purposely did it or Mustafizur purposely stood in Dhoni's path is a question of debate. However, what sparked after the match, right before the 2016 Asia Cup Final was a photoshopped image doing the rounds on social media where Dhoni's cut head was carried by an angry Taskin Ahmed.

The Bangladeshi fans, it seemed, went too far this time in showing their hatred, thereby further intensifying the rivalry and increasing bitterness towards India.
