ICC World Cup 2019 – WATCH: Sheldon Cottrell celebrates David Warner’s dismissal with a salute, Andre Russell joins his teammate

Posted On / /

David Warner and Glenn Maxwell became the latest entrants to the “Cottrell Salute Club” – both the Australian batsmen were dismissed by the West Indies left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell in their World Cup clash at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

Cottrell celebrates every dismissal of his opponent with a short march and a salute to the pavilion as a tribute to the Jamaican Armed Forces. He is a soldier in the Jamaican Defence Force.

“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,” Cottrell was quoted as saying to the BBC earlier this year.

“I do it every time I get a wicket. I practised it for six months when I was training in the army,” he further added.

Cottrell was joined by his teammate Andre Russell in the “salute celebration” when the former sent back the Aussie opener for 3.
