Warner condemns Shamsi’s wicket celebration

South Africa's mystery spinner delighted after dream debut
South Africa's mystery spinner delighted after dream debut

David Warner once again led from the front as his superb innings helped his team post a huge total of 194. He was batting brilliantly on 92
but then holed one out too long off to miss out on a well-deserved century. Following the dismissal, bowler Tabraiz Shamsi sprinted to deep cover and
started performing a dance routine with his captain Virat Kohli. The celebration shocked Warner as he continuously gazed at the jubilant pair
on his way back to pavilion.
In a post-match interview, the southpaw condemned the wicket celebration and said that kind of behaviour would not be tolerated under his watch.
“I was looking at Virat Kohli and I don’t think he was too impressed until he (Shamsi) got a bit closer,” Warner told reporters.

“I think it’s a bit hard for a captain to stand there and not go (through) the motions. “In my team, if someone does that at 150 off 15 overs, I wouldn’t accept that at all.

“I think it’s a bit fancy, to be honest.”

Warner’s compatriot and Rising Pune Supergiants’ spinner Adam Zampa also condemned the action and tweeted his disapproval moments after Warner’s wicket fell.



While Shamsi, Kohli and the rest of the Royal Challengers enjoyed Warner’s wicket, the Australian would have the last laugh as his side completed a professional 15-run victory in Hyderabad.

The 92-run knock also helped Warner to take back the Orange Cap from Kohli as the tournament’s leading run-scorer. Kohli is five-runs short of Warner’s  386 and  has played one match less than the Australian.
