Windies fast-bowler Sheldon Cottrell is known for his unusual celebratory style. Whenever the left-armer picks a wicket, he celebrates it with a ‘salute’ just like a military. During the second One-Day International between Windies and England, Cottrell scalped a five-wicket haul and his ‘salute’ celebration was all over the place.
