Imran Tahir usually celebrates in a very vibrant way after picking up a wicket. Thankfully the case is not the same when he takes a catch or the game between Australia's Prime Minister XI and South Africa would have been an embarrassing one for Tahir. It still was, but it would have exceeded all limits had he celebrated a catch running wildly towards his teammates.
Tahir was fielding on the deep fine leg during PM XI's batting and a pull shot from Josh Philippe went straight to his hands. But unfortunately, it was called a no-ball as soon as Kagiso Rabada delivered the ball.
As seen in the video, the leggie had no idea about the no-ball and he started celebrating immediately after picking up the catch. He turned towards the crowd with attitude and showed his name, before listening to his teammates to throw the ball back. It was hilarious!
The commentary made it more fun. “What is he doing down there,” asked one of the Fox Sports commentators as the other chuckled seeing the celebration and said, “Did not hear the no-ball call.”
“Is he dying down there? He was too busy looking at the crowd, they’re giving him some stick down there!”, continued the Fox commentators. “He still doesn’t know what’s happened. This was the catch which was a no-ball, took it nicely, turned around straight away, didn’t really say anything, just pointed to his name, that’s who I am.”
