Sammy's tacky showmanship

Iain O'Brien, Andrew Fernando, Sharda Ugra and Nitin Sundar talk about over-the-top celebrations, over-the-top commentators, and the poor returns from Sri Lankans and New Zealanders in IPL 2013.

These celebrations brings some colour into the game.... Actually, most of the cricket lovers love the attitude of the Windies and the way they play their cricket..It makes them an interesting team to watch. Actually, this was a bit harsh on Sammy especially, he usually does a jumping air punch but the new one is coz of his newborn daughter..

When there are 2 people in the office talking to one another, like Sharda and Nitin, it is sometimes difficult to hear them (low volume), especially when they speak to each other. Could you please (1) use mic, or (2) speak louder, or (3) speak with face towards the screen.

@coldcoffee123: You missed Bravo. And Marlon Samuels who missed out due to injury.

Nobody's going to be embarrassed by their celebrations...if you guys follow Sammy...you know that his usual celebration is jumping air punch. He's only doing this because his daughter was just born and this is the IPL. It's because of players like Sammy, Pollard, Bravo and Gayle while people look forward to seeing the Windies play. It's just their style..let them be. It's good to see the dancing and celebrations catching on with the other non-West Indian players as well. My thing is as long as you're not sledging the player you got out....celebrate how you want. No one cares about Dirk Nannes anyway.

Gayle, Pollard, Cooper, Narine, Sammy, Rampaul --- I do not see any international team challenging WI for 3-5 years, at least not in T20.
