Bangladesh left-arm pacer Shoriful Islam's celebration after dismissing Reeza Hendricks in the ongoing 2023 World Cup clash against South Africa at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Islam did the step, which was reminiscent of Hrithik Roshan's famous Bollywood song 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena', which came out way back in 2001. The fans in the comments sections of the ICC page on Instagram had instantly figured it out.
The dismissal occurred in the 7th over of the innings as Islam delivered a trademark inswinger and it stormed through the gate to hit the middle and off. As a result, Hendricks, who had struck 81 in the last match against England, perished for 12 off 19 deliveries with a boundary.
Here's the wicket and celebration video:
Bangladesh enter must-win territory as South Africa hope to boost their semi-final chances:
As far as the match-situation goes, the Proteas won the toss and chose to bat first. Aiden Markram continues to captain them, while Shakib al Hasan has returned for Bangladesh after missing the marquee clash against India.
The clash against South Africa looms as a must-win one for Bangladesh, given they have lost 3 out of 4 matches. However, the Tigers have won and lost 2 each against South Africa in World Cups.
The Proteas, in fact, are sitting pretty at 3rd spot and got a major boost to their net run-rate after beating England by 229 runs in Mumbai last week. Another victory would almost seal their semi-final spot.
