As Bangladesh prepared to get their ICC World Twenty20 Super 10 campaign underway against the West Indies, expectant fans gathered to show their support.
Close to the ground in Mirpur, Dhaka, fans have really got behind their team by buying team flags and other merchandise.
But some have taken their support to a whole new level.
If you think having your face painted is patriotic, then what about those who are getting their whole bodies painted in team colours?!
No paint, no gain, perhaps?

The ground prior to the majority of the fans getting in
Plenty of action outside though, as flag sellers were doing a roaring trade
A sea of bright red and dark green made its way to the stadium
And plenty were happy to have their faces painted as Tigers...
...although some went much further!
