PALLEKELE, Sri Lanka — The "Gangnam Style" dance video is one of the most popular on YouTube. And it’s certainly caught on with West Indies allrounder Chris Gayle at cricket’s World Twenty20.
The video, which has been viewed more than 292 million times on YouTube, has inspired Gayle to celebrate with the rodeo-style dance whenever he takes a wicket at the tournament.
He danced twice during the match against Ireland and then repeated the act on Thursday when he took the wicket of England’s Jonny Bairstow in his first over.
Gayle has promised his fans around the world that he will keep celebrating "Gangnam Style" as the World Twenty20 progresses.
West Indies defeated defending champion England by 15 runs in its opening Super Eights match in Group 1.
