New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas completed a 72-yard touchdown during his side's 45-35 victory over the LA Rams last night, but it is his celebration that has everyone talking.

Horn surely loved seeing his celebration used by one of the NFL's most talented wideouts, and he's probably also a big fan of the fact that the Saints are on a seven-game winning streak.

And after Thomas crossed the goal line, he turned back the clock to resurface one of the most memorable touchdown celebrations in National Football League history. But it also sparked quite an emotional reaction from Horn.

The Pakistani duo began to hit boundaries at regular intervals and both reached to their fifties towards the end of the innings. Khan's team can take confidence from their win over India in World T20 2016 but they have lost three on the trot ever since.

"Don't get me wrong, like I said earlier in the week, he's an MVP-caliber player and he made his plays when he had his chances", Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins told NFL.com, referring to Gurley. "We don't want to corrupt the game like that".

Thomas played coy with the media after the game, giving few details about the origins of the phone and who knew about it beforehand, saying he acted alone. Thomas then went to the goal post and lifted up the padding around the base of the post, where he had hidden a cell phone. He said he purchased the phones from a liquor store. All these guys just catching touchdowns and celebrating with each other, having fun, getting the crowd involved.

Thomas was flagged for this celebration, but he could care less. "I felt like I had an opportunity to make it happen, put the game away and make a call".
