Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali has a habit of celebrating every wicket in a quite animated way. Hasan was following his usual routine after knocking the off stump, deceiving wicketkeeper-batsman Ryan Murray with his pace. But during the celebration, Ali pulled a muscle in his neck. When his teammates came to congratulate him, he asked them not to pat his back and sat down on the pitch. On the other hand, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed tried hard to control his laughter as he checked up on Hasan.
However, the injury was not that serious as Hasan completed the over and bowled afterwards as well. He affected the run out of Wellington Masakadza as well.
Here’s the video of the 24-year-old’s generator celebration gone wrong –

This celebration against a world class batsman like Virat is fine but celebration on the wicket of a Zimbabwe’s batsman is the insult of himself
