Cottrell is a soldier by profession and salutes to show his respect to the Jamaica Defence Force after taking a wicket.
The netizens reacted to Naseem’s salute and some of them enjoyed while many thought that he needs to work with Cottrell more to perfect his salute.

Seriously Cottrell needs to work with Naseem Shah harder on the celebration. So far it has been disappointing.
