Colombo, Oct 6(ANI): Explosive West Indies opener Chris Gayle has said the team would head into the Twenty20 World Cup final against Sri Lanka on Sunday in Colombo with utmost confidence, and is hoping to get another chance to flaunt his Gangnam-style dance moves.
The Caribbean master-blaster slapped six sixes in a 41-ball innings of 75 as the Windies scored a 74-run win over Australia in Friday night’s World Twenty20 semi-final en route to final.
Gayle, who is averaging 54.75 in the tournament, is clearly the key to the match as far as Sri Lanka are concerned, and the big hitter is drawing inspiration from South Korean rapper PSY for the World T20 final, after dancing around Premadasa Stadium when the Windies clinched victory in their semi-final against Australia.
“I’ve seen the video a couple of months ago when it came out and there was big talk about it. When I was back home it was on a lot of programs. That’s how I got into it,” the Age quoted Gayle, as saying.
“It just happens. It wasn’t really planned. That’s me. It depends what type of mood I’m in. I’ll just do something crazy and it’s a good dance. Everyone enjoys it,” he added.
Gayle further said: “But it’s going to be a thriller up against world-class players. Oh definitely we’re going to rock against Sri Lanka.”
“We played against them in one of the Super Eight games so we know what to expect. The atmosphere, the noise and everything. It was really good to get that run against them even though we lost that game,” he concluded. (ANI)
