We can call him a mad fan of Bangladesh cricket or Yellow Tiger with a human coat. He is a motor mechanic by profession but it is not his true identity. Most of the people known him as the die hearted fan of Bangladesh. He is our Shoaib Ali. However, he is not renowned by his name, instead most of the people known him as the “Yellow Tiger”.   He can cheer his side all day irrespective of it being chilly day in Australia or the extreme weathers of subcontinent. He would never care about from where he would get his next meal or if he will he get a proper bed to sleep or not.   But Shoaib’s journey was not so easy as everyone thinks. It has not been easy as over the years his country has lost more matches but Shaoib hasn’t stopped cheering ever and it’s been nine years since he is cheering and supporting Bangladesh from the sideline. However, things have changed now and Bangladesh’s emergence as a strong cricket unit has brought limitless joy.   The life of this boy was full of poverty. He works as a motor mechanic. It is really very hard task for him to manage the expenses of plain fairs and tickets of the matches. This die hearted fan of Bangladesh expenses most of his earnings for watching his team’s matches. If you see Shoaib in the side line, you can be sure that Bangladesh team is playing at the field! shoaib   This young fan of Bangladesh said, “My aim was to follow my team wherever they went.” He then went a step further and decided to paint himself as a tiger — the official symbol of Bangladesh cricket.   “The idea to paint myself as a tiger was mine. It is also a symbol of courage. I wanted my team to play like tigers,” he adds. Shoaib made his debut as a “tiger” in the 2012 Asia Cup final in Mirpur, a match where Bangladesh beat India by five wickets.   After the 2012 Asia Cup, Shoaib became a regular in all home matches. With his symbolic costume and indefatigable energy, he has earned fans from several quarters. Most of the people of our country criticize the players when they play bad. But Shoaib never gives up his hope.   Bangladesh cricket board has taken a decision to make him the official fan of our country and provide tickets for every match of Bangladesh. He always comes up with his tiger painted body and cheers for Bangladesh. He is not the inspirational symbol for the team, but also a great example of patriotism.
