#5 Sheldon Cottrell's salute sendoff
Sheldon Cottrell, the tall bowler from West Indies is famous for his salute sendoffs. Cottrell who can be often seen celebrating in his trademark style in the Caribbean Premier League does it on the international stage too.
His style of celebration is something that leaves the commentators in splits every time he executes it. Soon, after taking a wicket, he marches down the pitch similar to that of a soldier and salutes the batsman sending him off the ground.
Once the West Indian was left embarrassed after he performed his celebratory steps only to find after a few moments that the batsman was not out.
