Ditch Sheldon Corttell grand salute and Imran Tahir’s celebratory run, for South Africa’s wrist-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi, has set the benchmark high when it comes celebrating a wicket.
The wrist-spinner, who was playing for Paarl Rocks in Mzansi Super League produced something extra on the field for the viewers to celebrate after taking a wicket.
The South Africa wrist-spinner literally pulled off a magic trick on the ground after taking a wicket.
In the video, one can see Shamsi pulling out a piece of cloth from his pocket after taking a wicket. He then waves it and turns it into what looks like a ‘magic wand’ by completing his trick on the field.
The celebration that surely wowed many, including us, was to celebrate the wicket of David Miller against Durban Heat.
Interestingly, this is also not the first time Samsi pulled off such a trick. In November, Shamsi did the magic wand celebration against Jozi Stars.
“Entertaining on the field is just my way of taking the pressure off myself and being able to enjoy things. I feel like when I am myself, I am able to play my best cricket” he said when asked about the unique celebration
