ICC bans masked man’s cel­e­bra­tions

The Herald (South Africa) - - Sport - – TimesLIVE

The overzeal­ous mask cel­e­bra­tion by Proteas lim­ited overs spin­ner Tabraiz Shamsi has been banned by the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil.

The left-arm wrist spin­ner grabbed the head­lines last week dur­ing the Mzansi Su­per League when his team, the Paarl Rocks, beat Dur­ban Heat by cov­er­ing half of his face with a mask show­ing a wild smile.

“I was just try­ing to have fun to give some­thing ex­tra to the peo­ple who come to sup­port us‚” Shamsi said.

“I don’t want to lose that fun fac­tor be­cause that is why I started play­ing cricket.”
