A spirited West Indies team won a World Cup after 33 years and an International Cricket Council (ICC) trophy after a gap of eight years. Celebrating West Indies’ maiden World Twenty20 trophy win, Amul uploaded a cartoon of Chris Gayle, celebrating in the calypso style.
Gayle was seen celebrating down the wicket at the World T20, performing his own energetic version of global hit "Gangnam Style".
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.
On Sunday, much was expected from Chris Gayle, who has been in a terrific form in the tournament, to break West Indies' long wait for a world title. But Gayle (3) disappointed by departing early as the West Indies made a slow start after skipper Darren Sammy opted to bat.
However, it was a brilliant 56-ball 78 by Marlon Samuels that took the Caribbean side to a modest 137 for six in 20 overs. Samuels was also adjudged as Man of the Match.
Spinner Sunil Narine was the pick of the Caribbean bowlers picking three for nine and skipper Darren Sammy got two for six.
Amul added in their cartoon, “Congratulations to the new T20 Champions!” They shared the cartoon through their different social media profiles.
