CWC fans stand to attention for Cottrell’s salute

AFP, Manchester, UK

West Indies paceman Sheldon Cottrell has handed plenty of batsmen their marching orders at the Cricket World Cup and seen his unique celebration win an army of followers online. A serving member of the Jamaica Defence Force, Cottrell’s march and salute has been his trademark since bursting onto the international scene in 2013 and the distinct send-off has caught the imagination of fans at the World Cup.

The left-arm quick returned figures of 4-56 in his team’s five-run loss to New Zealand on Saturday to take his tally for the tournament to nine. “It's a military-style salute. I'm a soldier by profession. Me saluting is just to show my respect to the Jamaica Defence Force,” Cottrell told the BBC.

“I do it every time I get a wicket. I practiced it for six months when I was training in the army,” he said. Among the many videos of the Cottrell imitation on Twitter, a clip of a young boy and girl copying the bowler's salute in a British street has gone viral.

The person who shot the video of the young fans asked the paceman where he could buy a West Indies jersey with his name at the back.
