2. Tabraiz Shamsi’s Satan mask
Tabraiz Shamsi haven’t made a whole lot of name for South Africa with his chinaman bowling. But the Proteas bowler has grabbed the limelight with his unique celebration. In 2018, he churned out a way of celebrating a dismissal, pulling out a mask similar to a Satan.
The 30-year-old left-armer used it while playing for the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the CPL and also for the Paarl Rocks in the MSL. To his dismay, it didn’t go down well with the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The apex cricket board banned the celebration in between the MSL 2018 before the match against the Tshwane Spartans. Earlier, the Johannesburg-born Shamsi said that he didn’t wish to be disrespectful to the batsmen. Rather, he said that he was having fun since he reckoned that bowlers were under pressure.
