Tahir's trademark celebration allowed meme experts to have a field day

Imran Tahir took two wickets during a World Cup match between South Africa and Pakistan on Sunday at Lord's. He dismissed Imam-ul-Haq (44) and Fakhar Zaman (44) to become South Africa's all-time leading wicket-taker in the tournament. 

He went past Allan Donald, who had 38 wickets to his name.
