How often will we be seeing the famous Cottrell salute at the 2019 World Cup?
The Jamaican seamer has an uncanny knack of getting under a batsman's skin, and not just because of his military-style send-offs (which originate from his time in the Jamaican Defence Force).
"I practised it for six months when I was training in the army," he has revealed.
Bristling with pace and bounce, and capable of spells of extreme hostility, Cottrell offers a different angle and dangerous variation for captain Jason Holder, who has praised his bowler's energy on more than one occasion.
For all his immense promise as a youngster, a combination of injuries and patchy form means at the age of 29 going into this summer's tournament he has managed fewer than 30 international appearances over the course of his career.
But that should not detract from the fact that this guy can really bowl.
