Sheldon Cottrell. Bowling action. That jump, hostility, and aggression, he is a treat to watch. And, it is not only his bowling. Who can forget his completely different way of celebrating whenever he picks up a wicket. He marches and salutes to the pavilion, followed by the opening of his arms to the heavens in what is a tribute to the Jamaican armed forces, of which he is a part of.

The left-armer made his debut back in 2013 during Sachin Tendulkar‘s farewell Test series in the first Test match at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. He made his One-day International debut during the West Indies tour of South Africa in early 2015 before booking his place for that year’s quadrennial event in Australia and New Zealand.

However, it was his exploits in the 2018 edition of the Global T20 Canada that paved the way for his comeback in the Windies set-up. The left-hander emerged as the highest wicket-taker (12 wickets) for his side from the Caribbean in what was an otherwise hugely disappointing WC for the West Indies.

Sheldon Cottrell – A bit active on Twitter

The left-hander apart from his on-field exploits has been quite active on social media as well. Last year, when the West Indies were in India. During his last tour of India (in 2018), Cottrell seemed to have learned a few Indian choice words, something he revealed when one fan asked Cottrell whether he learned some Hindi or not.

To which the Windies bowler reacted,” Only Namaste and a few swear words. Learnt a few great ones from mike recently.

Some other fan retweeted this tweet from Cottrell and said, “Your Namaste is enough for us!” However, the left-arm bowler didn’t think it was enough and went ahead posting a big Diwali wish in Hindi. He wrote, “Suprabhaat … happy Diwali. I spent a great time in Trinidad with the Indian diaspora when I played for the Red Force and I loved that time – this is my message with help from friends: Aapko aur aapke parivaar waalo ko meri oor se Deepawali ki dher saari shubhkaamnaayein”

After having a look at his tweet, many Indians responded and thanked him for his wishes.
