Post-COVID-19 Cricket: ‘Namaste’ Instead Of High-Five To Celebrate Wicket?


New Delhi: We may never get to see the famous ‘huddle’ of the Indian cricket team and the exultation after a dismissal with tight hugs, loud high-fives and fist pumps. The Indian cricketers may instead fold their hands and do ‘namaste’ when they get a wicket. 

India Test Vice-Captain Ajjinkya Rahane has suggested curbing the celebrations on the cricket field when action returns after the pandemic. It may be recalled that ICC is already considering a ban on the usage of saliva and sweat to shine the ball.

“Now celebrating a wicket will be like doing a namaste or something else. Just stay at your place like old times, don’t need to run in from the boundary, you can do namaste. You cannot take anything for granted. Not only cricket, I think in general our lifestyle will be impacted,” said Rahane in the web conference organised by ELSA Corp.
