Former West Indies coach Stuart Law has explained Sheldon Cottrell's salute celebration is a mark of respect to his commanding officer in the Jamaican army.

Cottrell twice showed off his trademark move early in the Windies' Cricket World Cup clash with Australia on Thursday, snaring the crucial wicket of David Warner (3) and then removing Glenn Maxwell.

The celebration is a hit with supporters and Cottrell was filmed teaching it to some young supporters at Trent Bridge this week.

Law has revealed the deeper meaning behind the salute for the Windies star, a member of the Jamaican Defence Force.

Coulter-Nile, Starc help Australia beat West Indies at CWC

Coulter-Nile, Starc help Australia beat West Indies at CWC NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) Stuttering at 38-4 and getting roughed up by West Indies' pacemen at the Cricket World Cup, Australia was facing yet another painful Trent Bridge experience. Nathan Coulter-Nile and Mitchell Starc came to the rescue. Coulter-Nile stroked a career-best 92 off 60 balls - the highest score by a batsman at No. 8 or lower in the tournament's history - to help lift the Australians from a perilous position of 38-4 to 288 all out. Starc then snared the first five-wicket haul of this World Cup to seal a 15-run win for the defending champions.

"He has to ask permission from his commanding officer to come and play for the West Indies," Law told the BBC's Test Match Special.

"He's an active member of the Jamaican army, so he has to get permission to come and represent the West Indies. It's just a mark of respect to his big boss.

"He's not doing it to upset anyone. It's just a mark of respect to the people back home, but it's become quite legendary now around the world."

Cottrell had figures of 2-11 from his first four overs against Australia, who were reduced to 79-5 at one stage on a tough morning.
