Pakistan speedster Hasan Ali is one of the most successful cricketers in recent times. His figures in limited overs cricket reflect how lethal he is. The pacer is currently ranked third in the ICC ODI ranking.

Hasan has a very unique way of celebrating a wicket. Apart from his bowling, fans are also attracted towards his wicket celebrations which looks similar to a bomb explosion.

Recently, in a chat with Cricket Australia, he explained his celebration. The 24-year-old said his celebration shows that he throws a bomb on the batsmen and when they get out he tries to show the explosion.

"It's like a bomb that goes to the batsman, and then he's gone," Ali said. "I started doing this from the day I made my debut for Pakistan. If you see my videos, first I do three things, my hand goes down then both hands go up. I did practice it sometimes because people are coming and watching and they want some entertainment so that's why I especially make it for my fans," he added.

Recently, the celebration had backfired on the pacer after he pulled his muscle performing the act against Zimbabwe. As soon as he picked up a wicket, the pacer tried to what he always does but it didn't end it used to be every time.

PCB later released a statement that the injury isn't too serious and he is good to be back on the field.
