Indian batsman KL Rahul took a sharp catch to dismiss Joe Root during England's second innings of the third Test at Trent Bridge.
England's captain Root swung at a wide ball, which he could have left and was caught at second slip by KL Rahul. It was Rahul's fifth catch of the match.
In a few seconds, the stunning catch went viral on social media when KL Rahul celebrated it by copying England's footballer Dele Alli's celebration.
Dele Alli-style celebration is actually very difficult then it appears many have tried and failed.
Try it out
To complete the move, create a circle with the index finger and thumb and try to place it on around one eye. Rest the remaining fingers on the forehead.
England's star footballer, who also plays for Tottenham, made this move popular when he pulled it off after scoring against Newcastle on the opening weekend of the new season of English Premier League.
