After a video of him dancing went viral on the internet, Lahore Qalandars' owner Fawad Rana has stated that he is merely a fan of cricket and enjoys it as much as the next sports fan in the country.

Speaking to DawnNews, Rana said “I am a common man like anybody else. I don’t know where the cameras are set, and I just go with whatever expression comes to me after I’ve seen a good cricketing moment.”

The video in question, widely circulated on social media, shows Rana breaking out his Gangnam Style dance moves after West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle’s dismissal.

The dance has been Gayle's signature celebratory move.

“I am now cautious about it and try to remain conscious of where the cameras are set since my pictures went viral on social media,” Rana said.

“I can’t suppress my expressions in cricket, especially when it comes to Lahore. I love Lahore and everything attached to it. So I get too excited during a good moment in the game or even on the team’s theme songs.”

Rana Fawad is well-known for his outspoken attachment to his team, often seen visibly upset during post-match interviews when the Lahore Qalandars have lost.
