The Rocking Baby
Packed schedules and hectic travel mean the modern cricketer has less and less time to spend with family each year, so it is only natural that he remembers them during his personal highs. The Bangladesh team first unveiled this particular celebration, during the 2007 World Cup, where they all started rocking an imaginary baby as the winning runs were hit, to celebrate a team-mate's becoming a father. Corey Collymore, when not "you-can't-see-me-ing," tried this as well, but it was last seen when Kamran Akmal reached a century against Australia earlier this year in Abu Dhabi, where he did it to celebrate the birth of his daughter. History records Bebeto, the diminutive Brazilian striker who wasn't Romario at the 1994 football World Cup, as having started it. Not as popular as expected since it first appeared, but sends out all the right messages, and no doubt will gain popularity.


The Rocking Baby? Really? I thought it was more of a retarded dance (initiated by, surprise surprise, Ashraful) that gained national popularity solely because of the success of the cricket team. It didn't quite look like a bunch of guys rocking their babies. OK, that didn't sound right.

The Chainsaw

Brett lee often pretends after taking a wicket that he needs to cut down some trees. Duly he goes through the motions of pulling the ignition cord to something that exists in his head. Sreesanth has taken to imitating the move in recent times, but it hasn't really taken off elsewhere.
