Josh Hazlewood came up with a unique celebration in the 2nd Test against the West Indies with Cameron Green. As the star All-Rounder has been reported to have tested positive for COVID-19, the players in the Australian lineup are maintaining a social distance from their teammates. Hence, Josh and Green were involved in an unlikely celebration after the tall pacer claimed the wicket of Kraigg Brathwaite.

Hazlewood was brilliant in the first session of the 2nd Test at the Gabba. The Australian pace trio with Nathan Lyon have been brilliant in the first two hours of the D/N Test match. Mitchell Starc has been the pick of the bowlers who have claimed wickets for fun from his end. The left-arm pacer, like always, has turned out to be a beast in the pink-ball Test match.
In his spell of 7.2 overs, the star pacer has claimed three wickets. He has managed to dismiss the likes of Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Alick Athanaze, and Justin Greaves in his first and 2nd spells respectively. Before Starc ran through the batting order of the WI, Josh set the tone early for Australia by claiming the wicket of the WI skipper with a beautiful length delivery.

Alex Carey made no mistake and claimed a safe catch behind the stumps. In the pink-ball Test match, Australia reduced the West Indies to a score of 64/5 at the end of the first session. Other than Starc and Josh, Pat Cummins also has managed to claim a wicket. After dismissing Brathwaite, Josh celebrated the wicket with each of his teammates. The star pacer clapped the hands of his teammates.
But there was a unique celebration between Josh and Green. The right-arm pacer and the All-Rounder fist-bumped each other in the air. It was a bit funny to see as well. The fans online are in bits regarding the celebration which has received mixed opinions. Some of the fans have claimed the players to be strict regarding the social distancing in such cases.
