Despite lacking knowledge of cricket and the language barrier, Argentines were earnest in bonding with Bangladeshi people through cricket and have been seen talking about Bangladesh's performance and sharing pictures, statistics, and news surrounding Bangladesh cricket.

Bangladeshi members were also happy to help them by sharing tutorials and videos and using Google Translate to answer their questions in Spanish. With the amount of support shared between the various members, the cricket fan group has shown a growing friendliness between the Argentines and Bangladeshi.
