COLOMBO: As India approached victory in the Nidahas T20 tri-series, former Indian cricketer-turned-commentator Sunil Gavaskar on Sunday broke into the "nagin dance". Surprising all, the cricketing legend replicated the Nagin pose for his fellow commentator and former Australian pacer Brett Lee. Former Pakistani batsman Aamer Sohail, who was inside the commentary box, looked amused by Gavaskar's sudden Cobra pose.
