South Africa bowler Tabraiz Shamsi, who claimed the wicket of Shikhar Dhawan during the 3rd T20I series, on Tuesday shared a picture with India opener while captioning it 'only love, enjoyment and entertainment'.

Tabraiz Shamsi caught attention of the spectators with his peculiar 'shoe celebration' after taking the wicket of Dhawan.

Dhawan was looking full of purpose as he launched the left-arm wristspin for two consecutive sixes in his very first over. However, Shamsi returned in his second over to send back the left-handed batsman back to the dressing room after his 25-ball 36.

While recalling the time when he was hit for back-to-back sixes, Shamsi added in his post that Dhawan should have warned him before the 'smoking him out of park'.

"No disrespect... only love, enjoyment and entertainment! Asked the big man why he didnt give me a warning atleast before smoking me out of the park 1st two balls lol #DefinitelyWokeMeUp #GottaHaveSomeFunAtWork," Shamsi tweeted.

South Africa defeated India by 9 wickets in the 3rd and final T20I to level the series 1-1.

In the 3rd T20I on Sunday, opting to bat first, India were restricted to 134 for nine by a disciplined bowling performance from the South African attack. While India were coasting along at 63/1 in the 8th over, the Proteas came back by picking up the next 8 wickets while giving away just 70 more runs.

Quinton de Kock smashed a breezy half-century off just 38 balls as South Africa completed the chase with 19 balls to spare.
