Kids teach Gayle new dance move

It’s no secret that West Indies captain Chris Gayle is one of the best dancers in his team. Come the four-match series against India, it would be worth keeping an eye on him because he has promised a new dance move. Gayle made a surprise visit on Wednesday to his old school - Excelsior High - where a bunch of enthusiastic boys demonstrated the new move to him on stage. One of them, Ronaldo Fletcher, asked Gayle to show it to the rest of the world when he takes a wicket against the visiting Indians. Gayle, who earlier presented a full sized autographed bat signed by the entire West Indies cricket team to the school principal, agreed. Here's looking forward to a Gayle wicket and... shall we call it the Excelsior dance.
