Bangladesh cricketer Nazmul Islam imitated the trending Pushpa step after picking a wicket in the ongoing BPL game between Ministers Group Dhaka and Sylhet Sunrisers. Incidentally, Nazmul is known unleashing unique celebration. Previously, he has done the famous cobra celebration after dismissing a batsman.
The incident took place in the 15th over of the match when Nazmul scalped the big wicket of Mahmudullah. It was a full delivery drifting into the pads from Nazmul Islam. Mahmudullah tried to sweep it only to find a top-edge and it landed straight to Taskin Ahmed, who was positioned at short fine leg.
Soon after the catch was completed, the camera turned onto the bowler, who was seen replicating the hook steps from the movie ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ starring Allu Arjun to celebrate the wicket.
