Caribbean party, Champion style: Usain Bolt, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh hail West Indies’ T20 win
New Delhi: The fantastic win of the West Indies team on Sunday is what everyone is talking about. With both the men and women cricket teams clenching the respective T20 World Cups, it called for a party, the Caribbean style.
Just that in a Caribbean party, everyone is involved.
The West Indies in process of celebrating their win, have given the Internet its latest viral dance step: the Champion dance. WI cricketer Dwayne Bravo had released an unofficial team anthem, ‘Champion’, a day before the T20 World Cup began on March 15.
However, the video went viral only after WI defeated India in the semi finals. The video of the team doing the “Champion Dance” at their hotel after the semis win got over 5 million views in just two days.
The ‘Champion Dance’ became the signature step of the team, they grooved to the song after defeating England to win their second T20 title along with the women’s team. However, it was only after yesterday that everyone shook a leg on it; including, sprinter Usain Bolt. Usain performed the champion dance and joined the celebration.
