West Indies celebrate, Gangnam Style

The West Indian cricket team may adopt a Calypso style while playing, but seem to have caught the 'Gangnam' fever while celebrating their victory.

West Indies bowled out Sri Lanka for 101 runs with eight balls to spare to lift a World Cup trophy after 33 years and an International Cricket Council (ICC) trophy after a gap of eight years.

West Indies' last win in an ICC tournament was in the Champions Trophy in 2004 and their last world title was the 50-over World Cup in 1979.

West Indies foiled Sri Lanka's dream of becoming the first host nation to be crowned World Twenty20 champions when they bowled out the hosts for 101 and win by 36 runs in Colombo on Sunday.
