West Indies veteran cricketer Chris Gayle unveiled a cartwheel celebration after getting Reeza Hendricks stumped off his bowling. It was the fourth T20I between West Indies and South Africa when Gayle tried to copy Kevin Sinclair's somersault celebration.

Gayle, in a chat with the commentators, revealed that his teammates told him to do the celebration and the big man didn't disappoint. "The guys recommend for me to follow Kevin Sinclair's celebration," he said.

It was the second over of South Africa's chase when Gayle dismissed Hendricks. On his very first delivery of the over, he provided West Indies a breakthrough, who were defending their score of 167/6 runs to save the series.

South Africa were restricted to 146/9 as West Indies registered a 21-run victory to level the five-match series 2-2. After the match, captain Kieron Pollard, who won the Man of the Match, said he took a chance by bowling Gayle in the second over and it worked out for them.

“Chris (Gayle) bowling that one over and getting a wicket... sometimes you take a chance and it works,” said Pollard.
