    I haven't really been following cricket for a while but when did Wahab Riaz's throat cutting celebration start?

    You had a row of Zalmi fans then copying the throat cut symbol repeatedly in the audience. It's really not an appropriate celebration at all.

    Hasan Ali's explosion celebration is walking the line as it is but this one is over the line in my opinion. Am I being too sensitive?

    No, you are not being too sensitive. That is an absurd celebration and he should stop it. Stick with the usual fist pumps and arm's spread celebrations. These elaborate celebrations are absurd and cringy. Imad should stop with his dumb act also.

    It definitely has a bad taste to it.

    If it was a one off you could understand, but someone should seriously tell him to stop.

    This is why you have media staff and consultants with these tournaments and franchises. The way the crowd was copying it with little kids everywhere was pretty disturbing.

    The full celebration is worse. First he cuts them up then he cuts their throat.

    I think the match referee has the ability to stop him aswell. Clearly they seem to be fine with it.

    agree 100%

    these guys really should concentrate one their cricket instead of this childish bs. Imad's celebration has to be the most embarrassing ultra-gay celebration on the planet.

    He copied Imran's celebration which was made iconic during the 92 world cup win. I don't know if that was intentional...

    I agree it was a much better and classier celebration than this nonsense with explosions and throat cutting and slicing people with swords.

    Very cheap and third class celebration after you are hit all over the park, and you are a bowler who cannot fix his wrist position, and also his sling in the arm after YEARS of playing international cricket.

    IMO, he will be in breach of ICC code if he displays this classless celebration while looking at the batsman in an international game.

    The question is why do one even need such kind of celebrations? Just go with the flow and celebrate it naturally. It looks very stupid. I think the current West Indian players in their leagues are their inspiration. They come up with some of the weird celebrations you will ever see.

    Getting inspired by Bangla league performances maybe. Would expect the Bangladesh team to do these kind of childish celebrations.

    That was just one off by Imran. As far as I remember Imran had no proper celebration after taking a wicket. He would just clap hands sometimes and raise hand in the air other time.

    Shaheen replied with his own version, this one seems so much better than Wahab's and quiet appropriate as well @Passionate Pakistani

    Not much different to Wahab. Wahab is slowly cutting the throat whereas Shaheen cuts it instantly.

    They can celebrate how they want however these new celebrations are a bit too cocky.

    As long as the ICC/Match referees are okay with it and it’s within the cricketing rules they can continue.

    If you're going to nitpick and be extremely meticulous, then Wahab's is a bit more sadistic as he's slowly cutting the throat, insinuating a slow painful death, with a wry smile on his face. Shaheen slashes the throat with one brisk movement, with an aggressive angry look to get it over and done with.

    The end result is the same for both, the methods are slightly different as explained above.

    And that's exactly what I've said. Both are killers. Serial killers are more sadistic, that's exactly how Wahab has celebrated.

    Lol Shaheen was just trolling Wahab tbh. I love his normal natural celebration, so full of passion.

    In Shaheen's defence he is cutting up the stumps, saying he sliced them up. He isn't cutting his throat.

    Shaheen's final move with his left hand is parallel to his throat also, same like Wahab. They both make the X sign initially and finish off with the horizontal slash across their throats. The only difference is the speed.

    Wahab's uses his thumb and runs it across his own throat, very different to Shaheen slashing in front of him with his fingers pointing away from his throat.

    It could be argued that he's slashing someone else's throat but probably not.

    As I said they're both very similar, if you're going to analyse both in depth then Wahab's is more sinister. Wahab is running it across his own throat, Shaheen is slashing his victims throat, both resemble death.

    By the way, this is the first time I've seen Shaheen do this celebration, if that is true, then because Wahab did it in the first innings, it appears Shaheen tried to mimic Wahab with his own version of the kill.
