During the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 match between Nepal and Bangladesh at the Arnos Vale Ground in Kingstown, St Vincent on Monday, one Nepali fan took the festivities to a new level.

In a moment of sheer elation, he jumped into a nearby pool to celebrate Nepal captain Rohit Paudel's dismissal of Bangladesh's Towhid Hridoy for 9 runs.
