Watch – Imran Tahir performing Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siuu’ celebration
Imran Tahir is well known for his unique and innovative celebration on the field after a taking wicket. Fans got to witness a new celebration of him during The Hundred League match on Tuesday.
In the Hundred game, Birmingham Phoenix were facing Trent Rockets in the 15th match. The latter got to bat first but they did not kickoff well as their opener Alex Hales departed cheaply. But the moment which made viewers entertained came after the 8th delivery when Imran Tahir came to bowl to Dawid Malan.
Tahir bowled a googly to Southpaw Malan, Malan tried to play it on the leg side but he mistimed his shot and the ball went in air and fell in the hands of Henry Brookes who was standing at the mid-off region. Afterwards, Imran Tahir started running on the field which he does usually but this time he came up with something new as he did Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siuu’ celebration.
