The Bangladesh Under-19 team touched down at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with the ICC Under-19 World Cup trophy this evening, amidst the din of the fans and media personnel gathered at the airport to receive the Tigers.

Having landed some time after 5:00pm, the Akbar Ali-led world champions were accorded a small reception at the airport lounge and there was a cake cut to commemorate the occasion.

The Tigers have arrived three days after beating their Indian counterparts in the final in Potchefstroom, South Africa on Sunday. The team landed sometime after 5 PM (BDT). The Young Tigers boarded a flight yesterday from Johannesburg at 10 PM (South Africa Time) and following a transit, they boarded a flight for Dhaka from Dubai this morning.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had earlier decided to keep the homecoming low-key, with a small reception planned at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, before Akbar Ali's team are taken to the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium's Academy ground for a press conference.
