Over the history of cricket, we have witnessed countless hilarious and outlandish celebrations. Be it Brett Lee’s ‘chainsaw’, Joe Root’s ‘mic drop’, Virat Kohli’s ‘Let my bat do the talking’ and everything else created by the West Indies players, these celebrations have been a crucial part of the sport.
Similarly, a new celebration has found its way into the list which was performed by the Brisbane Heat women’s team in the WBBL. After dismissing Perth Scorchers captain Sophie Devine for the score of 2, the Heat players brought the ‘bowling pins celebration’ where one person throws down an imaginary bowling ball towards a group of players who are imitating the pins which fall apart.

After the wicket, the team couldn’t build on this momentum but the subsequent players scored crucial runs to take the score to 140. Australian up-start Amy Edgar was the pick of the batters as she scored 36 in 26 balls with four fours and two sixes at an impressive strike rate of 138.46. Edgar was supported by the likes of Chloe Piparo and Maddy Green, who chipped in with scores over 30.
In the bowling department, Jess Jonassen was the star as she picked up three wickets in four overs while giving away 22 runs. Amelia Kerr, Nicola Hancock and Courtney Grace Sippel also picked up one wicket each. Whereas Indian all-rounder Pooja Vastrakar had a forgettable outing at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
