Pakistani Bowler Haris Rauf's ‘Slit-Throat’ Celebration Draws Flak On Twitter - Watch

02 Jan, 2020

    Pakistan fast bowler Haris Rauf has made a name for himself in the ongoing season of the Big Bash League and his brilliant show for Melbourne Stars has strengthened his chances of a national team call-up.

     

    However, during the match against Sydney Thunder, he claimed his tenth wicket in three matches but the resultant celebration drew ire from a number of cricket fans.

     

    The fast bowler castled Daniel Sams and then followed it up with a ‘throat-slashing’ celebration which has been the cause of anger for a number of users on Twitter.

     
     

    Here are some of the reactions on Twitter -

     
     

    Former Australian rugby league player Darryl Brohman was among those who condemned the celebration. "Not sure we need the throat cutting gesture from Harris Rauf everytime he takes a wicket. Clearly a very good bowler but the post wicket antics are over the top," he tweeted.
