Chennai, Dec 15  West Indies fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell’s name on Sunday trended on Twitter after he scalped the wickets of India captain Virat Kohli and KL Rahul in the first ODI here.

#Cottrell trended with 1,071 tweets, with fans posting pictures of him doing his now-famous, celebratory military salute after dismissing a batsman.

One fan posted: “I usually love Cottrell’s military-style salute celebration but not against Kohli.”

Another cricket fan posted a picture of cartoon character Tom from ‘Tom and Jerry’ saluting and wrote: “Virat Kohli gone for 4… and Cottrell’s signature celebration….”

“That’s smart bowling from Cottrell, gets the pace off from that over, grabs @klrahul11 and @imVkohli,” read one post.

A user posted another old picture of the bowler posing in salutary pose: “Cottrell’s wicket taking celebration after dismissing VIRAT. I’m waiting for the moment when VIRAT imitates the celebration while hitting Cottrell.”
