Zimbabwe have won their first T20 match against Pakistan. The hosts tied the three-match series 1-1 with a 19-run victory in Harare on Friday. Zimbabwean bowler Luke Jangi has become the best in the match by bowling brilliantly. Apart from bowling skills, the pacer is also in talks to celebrate the match.
He bowled 3.5 overs and took 4 wickets with only 16 runs. After getting the wicket, he took off his shoes and celebrated with his ears repeatedly. It was as if he was talking to someone using his shoes as a mobile phone. The militant celebration after Pakistan picked up the last wicket was a sight to behold. He explained the reason for the celebration at the end of the match.
“I tried to emulate the celebration of South African spinner Tarbiz Samsi,” the pacer said as he accepted the Machesera award. It is to be noted that after getting the wicket, Samsi, the top bowler in the T20 rankings, celebrated in all possible ways. He also has an example of making a handkerchief into a stick through magic after getting a wicket.
Zimbabwean bowler Luke Jangi had a strange celebration in the match against Pakistan for the first time in T20 cricket. After getting the wicket, he took off his shoes and celebrated with his ears repeatedly. It was as if he was talking to someone using his shoes as a mobile phone.
In cricket, almost all bowlers have some ‘trademark’ celebration style. Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar used to fly like a bird with his arms outstretched, while Brett Lee used to cut trees with a saw. Current Caribbean fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell saluted after receiving the wicket. However, South Africa’s Chinaman bowler Tarbaiz Shamsi has probably surpassed everyone in terms of style of celebration. Luke Jangi, the hero of Zimbabwe’s victory, celebrated yesterday by imitating Shamsi.
However, Shamsi’s celebration that attracted cricket fans the most was to turn the handkerchief into a big stick through magic. The top bowler in the T20 rankings celebrated in a South African T20 league match.
