Lahore Qalandars Grant Elliott sent social media into frenzy with his unique celebration after a thrilling contest against Islamabad United at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.
Former New Zealand all-rounder Elliott, who is remembered for his stunning batting display in the semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2015 against South Africa, once again showed his class by hitting a match-winning six against the defending champions.
After hitting the maximum, the 37-year-old dropped his bat while standing still, a celebration which became quite popular on the social media afterwards.
Here are some of the best reactions regarding the special event, including that from Punjab, Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is most likely supporting Lahore.
