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.
