Celebrations on the cricket field bring joy to the spectators but when things go over the top, eyebrows begin to raise. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) opener, Mayank Agarwal did one such gesture after notching up his season’s first half-century, but taking his helmet off after reaching the 50-run mark was not totally lauded by everybody.

Mayank Agarwal witnessed a forgettable outing in the IPL 2023 with the bat until Sunrisers Hyderabad’s last league game against Mumbai Indians, taking place at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The stylish batter, after having multiple woes, was dropped from the squad, but he was recalled to finish things off with a confidence-boosting knock.

The 32-year-old did not disappoint, as he played a flamboyant knock of 46-ball 83 proving to the world that he is far from finished. The best part of his knock happened when he reached the fifty-run landmark – his first of the season – during the 13th over, bowled by Jason Behrendorff.

Mayank Agarwal played a fullish delivery past the short third to reach the landmark, and soon after, he took his helmet off and looked up to the sky with eyes closed. The whole SRH squad members, who were sitting in the dugout, gave him a standing ovation.

Here is the video of the incident:

Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tim David, Nehal Wadhera, Chris Jordan, Piyush Chawla, Jason Behrendorff, Kumar Kartikeya, Akash Madhwal
