Watch video: When Mandeep and Virat taught Gayle to do the bhangra
Catch Royal Challengers Bangalore's Mandeep Singh, Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle break into an impromptu jig in the dressing room after their first home victory of IPL 8
There's victory dance and then there's RCB's Mandeep Singh, Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle's interpretation of the 'bhangra'. Many athletes, be it cricketers, spinters or footballers, are known for their victory jig. But the one that took place in the Royal Challengers Bangalore dressing room on Saturday at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium takes the cake. It's by far one of the more hilarious and energetic victory dances in a long time.

Though IPL 8 hasn't been a stop-start season for the Bangalore franchise, they haven't let their spirits flag and kept the mood in the dressing room positive. And their seven-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders in a rain-truncated affair at home
West Indies batsman Chris Gayle doesn't just know how to hit the ball hard, but also how to party hard. And the Jamaican cricketer was in his element on Saturday. Gayle is known for his trademark 'Gangnam style' celebrations on the field, but this year, he seems to be ready to try some Indian fare.
A video that gone viral on the internet shows Gayle trying to match steps with team-mate Mandeep Singh, who hit a match-winning 17-ball 45 in a chase of 112 runs in 10 overs in the rain-hit game. The 23-year old Singh starts the celebrations by breaking into an impromptu jig, followed by Gayle. RCB skipper Virat Kohli joins the duo with some enthusiastic moves and the trio bring the house down.
