Bowlers often prematurely celebrate after dismissing a batsman. Mostly when a bowler is sure that he has trapped a batsman LBW (leg before wicket) and feels it is not required to appeal. England pacer Start Broad often does that. Whenever he is convicted that he has dismissed a batsmen he runs in celebration and appeals as well. So, the term celebrappeal is amalgamation of celebration + appeal. Broad in the ongoing day-night Test at the narendra Modi cricket stadium in Motera was seen ‘celebrappealing’. However, umpire gave Shubman Gill not out. What is Celebrappeal in Cricket?
England captain Joe Root then opted for DRS (Decision Review System) but on-field umpire’s call was retained by the third umpire. The moment Broad celebrappealed, fans took to Twitter and lashed out at the English bowler. Here are some reactions we found.

Oh man... Broad put Root in a horrible position with that celebrappeal. He had no choice but to review after that. That seemed leg-sidy live.
