Big Bash League: Haris Rauf Facing Backlash For Celebration Style Despite A Great Start In The Tournament

Pakistan’s right arm fast bowler, Haris Rauf, is playing for the Melbourne Stars in the 2019-20’s Big Bash League (BBL), and apart from getting one of the best start that a player can hope for, he has also sparked controversy for his celebration style.

Yesterday, Rauf, who took 3 wickets as Melbourne Stars played against Sydney Thunder faced backlash on his throat slicing celebration, not just one, he celebrated in that style for every batsman he sent back to the stands.

Rauf first celebrated with his throat slitting celebration which was followed by aggressive body language in the direction of the batsman.

BBL shared the video of Rauf’s perfect delivery that got him a wicket, and in the same video you can see his celebration style.

Darryl Brohman, former Australian Rugby player pointed out his discontent on Rauf’s celebration style, he tweeted “Not sure we need the throat cutting gesture from Harris Rauf everytime he takes a wicket. Clearly a very good bowler but the post wicket antics are over the top. Who’s with me?”

One Twitter user said “Yeah, that celebration isn’t appropriate. I thought the BBL was “family friendly”??

Another user also showed his displeasure and said “Not so sure the slitting of the throat celebration fits in with Australian culture….”

However, there were some who were not okay with people criticising Rauf, one Twitter user wrote “Loved his celebrations! People are WAY too sensitive and try to be WAY too politically correct.  Urgh!!”.

The right arm fast bowler has already taken 10 wickets in just 3 appearances in the BBL 2019-20, and as Melbourne Stars defeated Sydney Thunders on Thursday by 3 wickets and 2 balls to spare, Melbourne Stars move to top of the table with 1 match advantage on the team in 2nd position.
