You have to excuse a young bowler for getting excited, but James Faulkner definitely overextended himself when going for a double high-five after snaring the early wicket of Shikhar Dhawan and sending keeper Brad Haddin back to the pavilion.

Faulkner shaped a full delivery away from had Shikhar Dhawan and found his outside edge for seven.

As has happened so many times before, the ball sailed comfortably into veteran Haddin's gloves.

But all-rounder Faulkner was too pumped to be on target with his celebration, thrusting a finger into Haddin's eye.

The Aussie vice-captain went off the field and left opener Phil Hughes to handle the keeping duties for 22 overs.

Jealousy may have played a role in his return to the field - he came back on after Hughes claimed Yuvraj Singh caught behind off the bowling of Mitchell Johnson.
