West Indies Celebrate World T20 Win Over Sri Lanks (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The West Indies' World T20 final win over hosts Sri Lanka prompted the inevitable when Chris Gayle took centre stage for the celebrations.

Elated and exuberant, the batsman scored a staggeringly low three off 16 as the Windies posted 137 but made amends when he began doing one-handed press-ups in victory.

Sri Lanka were bowled out for 101 from 18.4 overs despite limiting their opponents to a low T20 total, marking the Windies' first trophy since they beat England at the Oval in the 2004 Champions Trophy.
