    New Delhi (Sputnik): Known for breaking records after records on the field, the lively Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli wowed his fans once again on Friday by breaking into an impromptu dance on the ground after India versus West Indies match was briefly stalled due to rain.

    After winning the toss in today’s one-day match against the West Indies only 13 overs could be bowled at the Providence Stadium in Guyana, a country on the North Atlantic coast of South America, before the match was interrupted.

    However, the downpour couldn’t dampen the spirits of fun-loving Kohli, who gave a moment to savour his fans from the playground itself.

    Kohli, known for having a personality, was caught on camera getting into the groove while others awaited the match’s resumption. He was shaking it to the dance numbers that sounded for the spectators at the stadium.

    While showing off his dancing skills to the team, he taught West Indian master-blaster Chris Gayle a few moves, and he also seemed to be enjoying the moment too.

    The fans, as usual, were in awe of the buoyant Indian skipper.

    Kohli and Gayle, who share a cordial bond, were also spotted dancing at an earlier event.

    After a brief delay, the match resumed, but the unrelenting rain stalled the game once more. The match was finally called off by umpires.

    Recently Virat Kohli praised Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo, describing him as an "inspiration". He also admitted that he roots for any club for which Ronaldo plays.

    The second ODI between India and the West Indies will be played in Port of Spain on 11 August.
