[RxPG] Dhaka, March 18 - Bangladesh celebrated its World Cup cricket victory over India with fire crackers and experts began predicting that the 'minnows' might find a place among the top eight after all.

'Tigers Turn India Upside Down,' said The Daily Star, using the superlative 'Tigers' used for the Bangladeshi cricket team.

It called Saturday's victory in the first round match 'historic', saying that this was the second against 'fancied India' that had 'sent shock waves through the cricketing fraternity'.

'Bangladesh sent India crashing... Teenage brigade turn in comprehensive upset victory,' screamed the New Age.

Although the final outcome of the much-watched game came well past 2 a.m., the newspapers managed to snatch the headlines and some pithy, quick write-ups.

There were shouts of 'Bangladesh, Bangladesh!' on the streets of Dhaka and other cities once the team won convincingly.

In different parts of the capital, gatherings of supporters started getting thicker as news spread that the team was winning.

Dhaka University, the principal hub of political and cultural activity in the country, had set up a giant screen at its Teachers-Student Centre.

'This is just the beginning. We will rock the Caribbean!' said Noman, a student, jumping in joy after the win.

'Bangladesh's dream start gives them a great chance to progress to the super eight of the tournament,' he said.

The victory, in their first encounter in the World Cup, was seen as Bangladesh's finest cricketing moment, surpassing even the win against Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup and the one against Australia at Cardiff in 2005, the newspaper said.

'Glorious win for Tigers,' reported The New Nation. The Independent headline added: 'Roaring Tigers crush India.'

'By virtue of this win Bangladesh have brightened their position to enter into the elite Super Eight,' it said.
