KXIP pacer Sheldon Cottrell is popular for his quick responses to cricket fans on social media & he has again proved it once again by giving the best reply to his one of the cutest Fan! The Jamaican bowler who is currently in the UAE for the IPL 2020 took to twitter to present a cute message to a little girl who has been practicing his trademark salute.
He wrote, “Sorry Jiya I couldn’t find this tweet earlier. Just wanted to say you light up my day.” The video of the little girl imitating the pacer was posted on September 24th by her father. It was captioned as, “@SaluteCotterell The big fish Salute!! #SaluteJiya”.
Well that didn’t stopped there! The cricketer showed his kind & down-to-earth side by remembering that he had a conversation with Jiya’s father six months ago. Asking if he could help her family. He wrote, “6 months ago you told me about the situation of your family working in Chennai in the wedding industry with no weddings. Forget cricket for a minute. I pray things are improving and if not – what can we do to support? #India #salute #Chennai”.
