Unlike footballers, cricketers are not really known for their celebrations. While the footballers come up with some absolutely outrageous celebrations after scoring goals, the cricketers just resort to high fives or hugs. However, West IndiesKevin Sinclair looks like a big exception. In fact, looking at his celebration, one can say that he can give the footballers a run for their money.

Kevin Sinclair came up with an outrageous somersault celebration while playing for West Indies Emerging Team against Leeward Island in the final of Super 50 Cup. The Emerging Team thrashed the Leeward Island by 205 runs to clinch their maiden Super 50 Cup title. Kevin Sinclair played an important role in the win by picking up four wickets for just 20 runs.

And when he dismissed Kieran Powell to take his first wicket of the game, he made sure to celebrate it in style. As soon as Powell edged the ball to the wicketkeeper, Sinclair ran towards his right before doing the somersault twice to express his delight.

Here is that celebration by Kevin Sinclair: 


Emerging Team too good for Leeward Island:

Talking about the match, Emerging Team made light work of Leeward Island in the title-decider. Riding on impressive spells from spinners Kevin Sinclair and Yannic Cariah, West Indies Emerging Team bowled out Leeward Islands out for 88 to register the huge 205-run win in Port of Spain.

Young offpsinner Sinclair, playing only his ninth List A game, and lespinner Cariah, ran through the Leeward Islands’ line-up, finishing with figures of 4 for 20 and 3 for 8 respectively. Earlier in the game, the emerging team put up 293 for 7.

The score turned out to be too much in end as Leeward Island batsmen had no answer to Sinclair and Cariah. Six of Leeward Island’s players were dismissed for single-digit scores. The highest individual score was Amir Jangoo’s 43-ball 20.

Openers Kieran Powell – the highest run-scorer of the season – and Montcin Hodge contributed just 13 and 1 respectively, while the in-form Devon Thomas fell for a 22-ball 15. A clutch of wickets fell after Cariah removed Keacy Carty in the 18th over, as Leeward Islands lost their last seven wickets for just 24 runs.
