India pacer Mohammed Shami gave Sheldon Cottrell a taste of his own medicine in the just-concluded World Cup clash between India and West Indies in Manchester. Cottrell has made a name for himself in the cricketing circle with his trademark celebration after taking any wicket. His famous celebration features a military march and salute. Against India, Cottrell picked up two wickets and did not stop from doing his trademark celebration.
One of those two wickets was that of Mohammed Shami. In the 49th over of the Indian innings. Cottrell made Mohammed Shami edge one behind to the wicketkeeper. And as soon as Shami did it, Cottrell did the military march before saluting to rub more salt to Shami’s wounds. However, Shami had the last laugh in the game.
Cottrell became the ninth West Indian wicket to fall in yet another dismal performance from the Caribbean outfit. Yuzvendra Chahal sent the left-arm pacer back for 10. And soon after the dismissal, Shami could not help but taunt Cottrell by doing the latter’s trademark celebration with a wide smile on his face.
Here is a clip of that moment involving Mohammed Shami:
In reply, West Indies were all out for just 143. Shami was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 4 wickets while Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal picked up two apiece. India will next take on England in the tournament on Sunday.
