Test debutant Kevin Sinclair produced the craziest wicket celebration on Day 2 of the 2nd Test against Australia at the Gabba by doing a cartwheel backflip after taking his maiden Test scalp.
A right-arm off-spinner, Kevin Sinclair was belted for a flurry of fours by Alex Carey, Usman Khawaja, and Pat Cummins at the Gabba. He finally had his maiden Test wicket when Khawaja edged a tossed-up delivery outside the off-stump to Alick Athanaze at first slip.
Not the dismissal, but the amazing celebration from the bowler that followed has got everyone stunned.
No sooner had the catch been taken than Kevin Sinclair brought out the astounding wicket celebration: he did a cartwheel and then a backflip which got the commentators wild and the crowd wowed. Despite the shellacking he had received earlier from the Aussie batters, the 24-year-old celebrated with an infectious smile on his face.
