Despite gloomy weather, Tigers’ fans came to the Bristol county ground in numbers to support their favourite cricket team.

The weather did not permit any cricket to be played on Tuesday but fans were enthusiastic all day long until the match was called off on around 2pm local time.

It was cold along with overcast conditions since morning on Tuesday. It had been raining heavily from Monday afternoon here in Bristol. Despite the possibility of the match being washed out, fans were gathering at the ground in long queues in front of the main gate from around 9am.

Chowdhury Jewel comes all the way from Manchester

Many travelled from different cities to Bristol for the game. I met a fan, Mamun, who had to drive all the way from London with his family and waited until it was announced that the match has been called off.

I also met a fan named Chowdhury Jewel, who came all the way from Manchester, 158 miles away from Bristol, to enjoy the game. He was also wearing an outfit of a tiger and roamed all around the venue.

When asked about his visit despite knowing that there was a slim chance of cricket being played according to weather forecast, Jewel smiled and informed he had to take the chance to see his favourite players performing with the bat and ball.

Despite constant rain, some fans were gathering in front of the dressing room and cheered loudly whenever they saw a Bangladeshi player roaming around the balcony.

In the end, despite all those enthusiasm they had to return without enjoying any cricket.
