I'm a soldier by profession. Me saluting is just to show my respect to the Jamaica Defence Force," he told the BBC. <p></p> <p></p>"I do it every time I get a wicket. I practised it for six months when I was training in the army." <p></p> <p></p>Cottrell's contribution was hailed by West Indies captain Jason Holder whose team are now 1-1 in the five-game series.
