The Windies Show How It’s Done

The West Indians have always been entertainers on the field; shaking their leg, swaying on the field each time after a victory, amusing us with their gimmicks. After celebrating their 2012 T20 World Cup win Gangnam style, this time too, the West Indies did it, Champion Style, with the song sung by Dwayne Bravo, which already has hit three million views on YouTube.


The T20 final match was a nail-biting one, with the West Indies defeating England by four wickets. The Windies needed 19 runs of 6 balls in the finishing over. Carlos Brathwaite, who played his debut World Cup, hit four consecutive sixes in four consecutive balls. When the last six sprung across the stadium, the Windies team rushed out onto the field, expressing their joy and spreading cheer all around.

Post their win, captain Darren Sammy delivered a sentimental and heartwarming speech, recounting the adversities and uncertainties with which the team entered the tournament; without a uniform, without support from their home Cricket Board, and with a new manager who had no experience managing a team before on board. Sammy gave full credit to the 15 members of the team and dedicated his win to the Caribbean fans, uncertain whether West Indies would play T20 cricket again but certain that they played like Champions.


The West Indian team, special mentions to Dwayne Bravo, Darren Sammy and of course our all-time favorite Chris Gayle, swayed to the beats of Dwayne’s supremely catchy song, on the field when they received the Cup, in the dressing room, shirtless, exhibiting their chiseled bodies, and even after their win against India, dancing towards Mumbai airport. This already popular song celebrates the West Indies legends as well as Barack Obama, Serena Williams, Usain Bolt and others as champions. Bolt even posted a video dancing to the song. And for all you people wondering, this isn’t Dwayne`s first song. He already has two other songs to his credit and has made many others dance to his tunes.


While England was just playing a match, the Windies were playing for something more; a lot more was riding on the players’ minds. So, while we were saddened by India’s exit, West Indies more than deserved to take home the honors. Everybody knows West Indies is the CHAMPIONS! 😉
