Captain Nicholas Pooran, his deputy Rovman Powell, all-rounders Jason Holder and Kyle Mayers and left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell decided to up their game in the viral ‘Kala Chashmah’ trend as they brought some real black shades for groove to the popular Bollywood song. ICC shared the video where the five players show off their dance moves.

It is not the first time that cricketers have joined the bandwagon as the Indian team after winning the Zimbabwe series followed the trend, while women from Hong Kong and Barbados Royals have also followed the same trend.

The West Indies had a mixed preparation for the World Cup as they lost all three T20I series in the build-up to India, New Zealand and hosts Australia. However, the team pulled together in the first warm-up game against the United Arab Emirates.
