We all are mesmerized by cricketers’ ability to turn the game on its head, playing classy shots, style statements, dignity and savage press conferences. Nevertheless, one thing that gets overlooked is the cricketers’ mode of celebration after reaching a landmark, picking up a wicket or post-winning any game.
Over the years, there have emerged a host of cricketers with unique celebrations, which some fans always cherish it. There can be ample reasons behind the sort of celebrations that they have adopted, inspired by an athlete from a different sport or to signal the intensity of bouncing from a rough patch.
We take a look at ten cricketers and their unique styles of celebration:
Imran Tahir is one of the greatest leg-spinners of the modern era in limited-overs cricket. Having made his international debut in 2011, the Pakistan-born leg-spinner Tahir has chalked up some record-breaking numbers in ODIs and T20Is. Across two white-ball formats, Imran has featured in 38 T20Is, and 107 ODIs, picking up 63 and 173 scalps respectively.
When the 41-year old picks up a wicket, he sprints across the ground with his hands wide open. Along with that, Imran Tahir also punches the air and slaps his chest in celebration. The veteran does all that before celebrating anything with his teammates.
