Star West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle celebrated today and he did it in style – 'Gangnam Style'.
The big-hitter blasted 58 off 35 balls to help his side to 179-5 against England, a target 15 runs too many in their first Super Eight match at the World Twenty 20 tournament.
But it was Gayle’s celebration of the wicket of Jonny Bairstow that has people talking.
Gayle finished with 1-27, and nabbed Bairstow before simulating the lassoing-action dancing in the popular 'Gangnam Style' video.
The song has gone to No 1 in New Zealand – the first foreign language to register at the top of the charts in three decades.
Watch the video for the celebration.
