Watch ICC bans Tabraiz Shamsi’s mask celebration

The International Cricket Council (ICC) isn’t really a fan of the South Africa spinner Tabraiz Shamsi’s unique mask celebration as he has been informed to not do the celebration anymore in the future. [Read in Bangla: মুখোশ পরে উদযাপন করা নিষিদ্ধ করলো আইসিসি]

ICC ban Tabraiz Shamsi's mask celebration
Shamsi was seen pulling off a unique mask celebration after picking up wickets in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and then in the ongoing  Mzansi Super League (MSL).

He is currently playing for Parl Rocks in the MSL and was seen celebrating with the mask covering his face. The player also said in an interview that the celebration is only for fun and he doesn’t intend to disrespect any batsman.

“There is so much pressure on you as a bowler in a game. I’m having fun with my celebrations and it is definitely not because I want to be disrespectful to the batsman,” he said.

But ICC wasn’t too convinced with the celebration and they have decided to ban it. The 28-year old won’t be seen celebrating with the mask anymore.

Shamsi named the celebration ‘Masked Magician’, naming it after American magician Val Valentino who used it as his stage name.

And the Masked Magician wasn’t the only celebration under Shamsi’s collection. He also came up with another ridiculous celebration, naming it the ‘Shoe Phone celebration.’
