    Wahab Riaz’s mysterious ‘sword’ celebration explained

    Wahab Riaz's latest celebration style has gone viral


    DUBAI: Wahab Riaz is back with an all-new mysterious (and quite scary!) celebration in the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League.

    The most successful PSL bowler has left behind his horse-shoe moustache from last year, but seems to be battling some invisible enemies this time around with an imaginary sword. Or so it seems to the untrained eye.

    Watch his celebration here. It’s quite glorious to watch. No wonder it has got so popular with the fans.

    Even Shaheen Shah Afridi tried to imitate him in mock revenge during the Lahore Qalandars vs Peshawar Zalmi match on Sunday night.

    But hey, it’s not an imaginary sword. According to Wahab Riaz, it’s him drawing an imaginary cross to indicate he’s crossed off yet another batsman from his list and added him to his wickets tally.

    “My goal is to take a lot of wickets, and I’m crossing off each wicket [from my list],” the fast bowler told Geo.

    “There should be entertainment. It’s a league, so I’m taking advantage of the opportunity. Every bowler should have a way or another to celebrate.”

    Wahab pointed out that T20 cricket “is a bit harsh on the fast bowlers. So when a bowler gets someone out, they should celebrate to show their happiness.”

    “I’m not out to offend anyone,” he added.

    We love the celebration. Do you?

    So his gesture is that he is crossing off every wicket he takes lol.

    And the article also confirms Shaheen tried to imitate Wahab. :p

    If you believe that I've got a bridge that goes over the Thames to sell you.

    Drawing a thumb over your throat is not crossing another wicket off your tally. I hope he stops now that it's been brought to his attention.

    “My coach has told me to lay off this celebration style and, in fact, all the bowlers have been told to avoid excessive celebrations after taking a wicket,” Wahab, who has taken 13 wickets in the T20 league, said.

    The experienced pacer, known for his ability to bowl at around 150mph, said he had decided to get rid of his handle bar moustache for the same reason.

    “I am back to a clean shave and avoiding taking a wicket with my slitting the throat celebration as I also realised it could lead to criticism and unnecessary controversies. I didn’t look very nice after I saw it on screen myself,” Wahab said.
