World Cup 2019: Indian pacer Mohammed Shami mimicked West Indies player Sheldon Cottrell's trademark salute after he fell to Yuzvendra Chahal during India vs West Indies match in the World Cup 2019.
India won the match which was held at Old Trafford Thursday knocking West Indies out of the semi-finals race.
Cottrell known for his typical salute and march antic did the same after taking an Indian wicket during the match which went viral during the World Cup. Albeit, India had the last laugh with Shami on fire as he finished with 4 for 16 to stun West Indies out of the semi-finals race.
It was a light moment after Chahal snapped up Cottrell that Shami aped the West Indies pacer.
Being a soldier by profession Cottrell does his trademark salute after he takes a wicket to show his respect to the Jamaica Defence Force, he explained earlier during an interview with BBC.
"It's a military-style salute. I'm a soldier by profession. Me saluting is just to show my respect to the Jamaica Defence Force," he had said.
"I do it every time I get a wicket. I practised it for six months when I was training in the army."
Shami had substituted Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the game against Afghanistan. The pacer became the 2nd Indian bowler to take a World Cup hat-trick after he blocked Afghanistan's move from registering a shock win.
India smashed West Indies by 125 runs at Thursday's match moving one step closer to the semi-finals of World Cup 2019.
