Most celebrations in the IPL are over the top. Sometimes they look orchestrated; but how does it matter as long as the spectators enjoy them.

Sunrisers Hyderabad's Darren Sammy walks away with the most endearing celebration of IPL 6 -- his 'pacifier celebration'!

His impressive act of 'pacifier sucking' stood out this season.

Sammy dedicated his colourful celebration to his one-month old daughter, Princess Skai.

The 29-year-old West Indies captain was a treat to watch after reached his fifty, his first in T20s.

He took out a baby pacifier tied around his neck and sucked on it. That was not enough; he had the spectators in splits when he brought his arms together for a cradling action.

Every time he picks a wicket or takes a catch, the all-rounder takes off on the Korean rapper's jig.

'Gangnam style' was a huge hit worldwide last year and became the first video on YouTube to reach a billion views.

Though S Sreesanth failed his fans after the spot-fixing scandal, this celebration won him a strong applause.

There was talk of him regaining a place in India's squad on the next overseas tour, but, sadly, the Kerala pacer made news for all the wrong reasons.

Praveen Kumar had a successful outing in IPL 6 but his celebrations were a tad 'different'.

We haven't forgotten that he was reprimanded by match referee Dhananjay Singh for abusing an opposition player during a match in BCCI's Corporate Trophy in Raipur.

It was learnt that the match referee had described Praveen as "mentally unfit" in his report to the BCCI.
