Nothing's more ecstatic than victory, never mind if the competition is between two teams or it's a one on one. Here's a compilation of some funny, wacky and groovy celebrations by our cricketers.
The West Indies were down and out after losing the first 3 matches of the 5-match series against India, but the Caribbean party does not take much to kick off as demonstrated here by Andre Russell and Darren Bravo during their win in the fourth ODI.
After clinching the Ashes early this year, the England team did an impromptu Sprinkler Dance to celebrate the victory. The dance involves holding an arm out and imitating the jaunty rotation of a garden sprinkler. Soon the fans in the stands joined them.
When it comes to exaggerated celebrations, India pacer S Sreesanth takes the crown, shows us some moves (read antics) before taking a bow. His pitch-banging effort after claiming Andrew Symonds' wicket in the first ODI in 2007.
But Sreesanth's not only about aggression. He moved and grooved to celebrate his success during the third Test against England in 2007 at the Oval.
And on this occasion Sreesanth decided to combine his aggression and his dance moves to silent South African pacer Andre Nel. Having being provoked, he hit Nel for a six and ran at the middle of the track swirling his bat like a sword and broke into war dance. That was some sight.
But you don't need to know the art to celebrate. During Bangladesh's match against Ireland in the World Cup, all-rounder Mohammad Ashraful dismissed Andrew White to break into dance that resembled a boxer warming-up in the ring.
And when we talk about animated celebrations, how can we forget Harbhajan Singh. During the contentious Sydney Test in 2008, in which he was accused of calling Andrew Symonds a 'monkey', Bhajji celebrated Ricky Ponting's wicket in the most symbolic way. Take a look and decide it for yourself.
Sourav Ganguly did a Salman Khan after India clinched NatWest Trophy in 2002. Standing in the balcony of the sacrosanct Lord's, Ganguly took off his shirt soon after Zaheer struck the winning run. He swirled his shirt and had some nice words to say for his opponents.
And this is what had instigated Ganguly to do a dare-bare act at the Lord's. Andrew Flintoff had taken off his jersey at the Wankhede Stadium after beating the hosts in February 2002.
Ireland's Trent Johnston seems to have a funny bone too. After claiming the prized wicket of Indian opener Virender Sehwag's wicket in the World Cup, all Johnston could do was some chicken dance. Typical Irish!
But Johnston was not the first one. Shoaib Akhtar resembled a huge chicken when he celebrated Kevin Pietersen's wicket during the 2005 Test series. Many say he mocked KP's hairdo with his jig. We found it funny and hope Pietersen did it too.
