  1. Over the last decade, Chris Gayle has established himself as the most dangerous batsman of this generation, if not of all time. A big part of his journey towards becoming the feared powerhouse that he is, has been plying his trade in franchise tournaments in the Indian subcontinent. He has featured for Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and teams from Lahore and Karachi in the Pakistan Super League. The love he has received from the subcontinent has been unparalleled. So, it comes as no surprise to see Chris Gayle show his support in creating the spectacle that is India vs Pakistan. In the run-up to the game to be played between the two rivals in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, he showed off his 'special outfit' for the game on social media. View this post on Instagram Yup!

India for indians and Pakistan for Pakitaniz but I hope it's going to be good game. Both countries needs to show sportsmanship. Gayle Gandsta ♠ï¸ — Salman khalid (@Awesomesalman1) June 15, 2019 The 'Universe Boss' is prepared for the big festival today and with an expected viewership of 1 billion people across the planet, so are fans of both teams. Team India may be favourites but Pakistan will post a fair fight with an explosive batting lineup and unpredictable bowling. If rain does not play spoilsport, it is set to be an epic encounter.
  2. As the tenth and last team to have announced their 15-man-squad for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019, West Indies have decided to include massive hitters like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell in the roster to help skipper Jason Holder put up some big numbers on the scoreboard. While the team has the right to make amendments to this provisional list of cricketers without seeking special permission from the International Cricket Council (ICC) until 23rd May 2019, the two veterans seem to have given themselves a good chance of making it to the final roster. The wait for the #MenInMaroon squad is over! England & Wales..here WI come! ð´ ðªð½ð¥ #Weallin #ItsOurGame #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/Wy9KHx9OZA — Windies Cricket (@windiescricket) April 24, 2019 The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had announced that the selection process for the Men in Blue will not include their performance during the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League. With due credit to them, they stood by that promise when they chose old-timer and consistent Dinesh Karthik over the explosive youngblood, Rishabh Pant. BREAKING: India have named their #CWC19 squad! pic.twitter.com/mMXt5kAG6Y — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) April 15, 2019 On the other hand, it seems as if the Windies roster has had a huge influence by the two Carribean athletes' performances during the Indian Twenty20 league. Albeit, Gayle looked dialled in during their ODI series against Eoin Morgan's English Team before the IPL began, Russell's entry into the squad seems to be decided purely on his monstrous season with the IPL franchise, Kolkata Knight Riders. Well played boys @KKRiders @lynny50 @NitishRana_27 @robbieuthappa . Each one in the team did so well but you all will agree all words of praise r worth less than this picture... pic.twitter.com/bak2zQ9NqD — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 5, 2019 "I spoke to Andre a few days ago. He has a few niggles. He has some pain behind his knee but he assured the selection panel that he'll be okay for the World Cup," Robert Haynes, the interim chairman of Cricket West Indies, said. "He (Russell) has scored a lot of runs and we'll be using him as a batting all-rounder," said interim head coach Floyd Reifer. "He's doing very well in the IPL. We have got to manage his injuries and have three to four days rest between the games." Surprisingly, other big hits such as Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine and Devendra Bishoo did not succeed in putting themselves on the list. But should Team India be concerned? There is no doubt that players like Gayle and Russell have the potential to smack the ball to far away places, as their massive success during the Twenty20 league is testament to their batting prowess. Having said that, the difference between the formats of T20 and ODIs is significant. One-dayers require better stamina, more endurance and most of all, the patience to play 50 overs without making silly mistakes that can lead to the loss of wickets. In the past year, both Gayle and Russell weren't included in the ODI roster for many bilateral and trilateral series for the Windies. While the 'Universe Boss' has played in just five ODIs, Russell was involved in a single ODI against Mashrafe Mortaza's Bangladesh side which the Windies lost. With the lack of familiarity with this format of the game in the recent past, even though the Windies roster seems to be imposing on paper, their success on the field is yet to be witnessed.
  3. Christopher Henry Gayle, this man has grown to become the bane of a lot of bowlers' existence through his 20 years of batting for the Windies team and the thought of bowling six deliveries to this batting legend seems to be a harrowing one. But, as a member of a cricket team, you have got to do what your captain says. Thus, came in the 25-year-old Mohammed Siraj to bowl his first over of the game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) with the 'Universe Boss', himself on strike. To add to Siraj's misery, his first over also happened to be the final one of the batting Power Play for the Kings XI so Gayle had a little extra motivation to lookout for bigger shots during these six deliveries. Opening the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowler's over with a four on the first ball, Gayle smoked Siraj for a six and another four on the second and third deliveries, respectively. Letting the gasping pacer breathe for a dot ball, Gayle continued the onslaught hitting another six and a four on the last two deliveries of the spell, bagging a total of 24 runs in the sixth over, all for himself. SIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRAAAA-J WELCOME! ð 4,6,4, Gayle has decided to unleash and he's taking on Siraj here. ð#SaddaPunjab #KXIPvRCB #KXIP #VIVOIPL — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 13, 2019 Siraj went on to bowl three more overs of his quota but resulted in becoming the most expensive bowler for the Virat Kohli side giving away 54 runs in 24 legal deliveries. Throughout the 2019 season of the IPL, Siraj has been one of the costliest bowlers not only for Bangalore but the entire league. Having bowled 22.1 overs this season, Siraj has let off 210 runs while bagging just six scalps with an economy rate of 9.47. After his first showing of the match, RCB fans took to Twitter to speculate as to what keeps the team managers of the squad from dropping him: Mohammed Siraj has @imVkohli 's nudes. Why else would he be selected? #KXIPvRCB — Harshith (@CS_Harshith) April 13, 2019 It's hard to understand why @imVkohli is still having Mohammed Siraj in the @RCBTweets team after so many disappointing performances by him. #IPL2019 #KXIPvsRCB — Vaibhav K (@VaibhavKajarek2) April 13, 2019 Still a better bowler than Mohammed Siraj ð𤣠#VIVOIPL #PerfectFan #HYDERABAD #KXIPvRCB #PLAYBOLD pic.twitter.com/C2hKZg4eNj — Prithvi Cena (@prithvicena21) April 13, 2019 Hey @RCBTweets why is #MohammedSiraj is in playing X1 such a useless player — Sushith (@Sushithsuvarna) April 13, 2019 Mohammed siraj = lol — Prashanth Karanth (@Prashanth511) April 13, 2019
  4. So far in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), regardless of which team is leading the tournament according to the Points Table, we have to agree that the highlight of the entire league are the West Indies cricketers who have been playing the game of cricket on a level a lot higher than anyone else. Be it the ability to chase down huge totals or their performance with the ball, the Caribbeans look to be miles ahead that the rest of the players on the field in this month and a half long contest. For instance, Kolkata Knight Riders' Andre Russell has been on a tear ever since the franchise's first game of the season against Kane Williamson's SunRisers Hyderabad. Chasing an above average total of 181 runs, Russell took to the crease on the fifth spot and led the team to victory playing a 49 off 19 balls innings. Playing with a scary strike rate of 212.39, the 'Baahubali' of IPL is a player to look out for in the biggest tournament in the game come May. Ruthless. Relentless. Russel ðªð¥ The absolute hitting that led to this though ðð@KKRiders @Russell12A #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/4Ou1HzYS34 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 If there is someone who's a bit scarier than Russell, it has to be the 'Universe Boss', Chris Gayle who opens the batting order for Kings XI Punjab along with KL Rahul. At 39 years of age, Gayle, has opened up about his thoughts of retiring from the game after the World Cup. However, his beyond-amazing performance in the ODI series against England and recently found IPL mojo, Gayle is one of those batsmen who can change the game in his team's favour in the blink of an eye. Kieron Pollard is another veteran who seems to have found his game during the 2019 IPL. Having struggled for a couple of seasons in the past, Pollard has returned to his original destructive-self and how. While struggling to connect with the ball in the first few games, Pollard showed to the world and the selectors of the Windies side that he's still skilled enough to make it to the World Cup roster, keeping in mind that this could be his final chance to lift the trophy. Hardik: Kieron Pollard is a legend. Only one man could've done this.#OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/YcUKauYTWv — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) April 10, 2019 Although Chennai Super Kings' Dwayne Bravo isn't having the best IPL season of his career, the fact that he continues to be a top-10 bowler of the league has to be appreciated. The one capable enough to catch fire with the bat quickly, Bravo's inclusion to the team could be crucial for the Windies' success. A blend of such veterans with young and raw talents like Alzarri Joseph can make for a scary West Indies squad, maybe even capable enough to bring back the glory days to the Caribbean. Alternatively, the Windies also have a tendency to fall apart when it comes to playing together as a team. Series like the one against England a couple of months ago is a perfect example of how individual talents like Gayle, Jason Holder and Darren Bravo fail to perform well as a team and the team ends up crashing and burning.
  5. “Work hard in silence. Let your success be your noise,” a statement once given by Frank Ocean is completely justified by the English all-rounder, Sam Curran. As a budding cricketer in his school days, Curran had an opportunity to meet his idol Chris Gayle, and now, when he is 20-years-old, he has earned his opportunity to share the dressing room with the Gayle Storm. Recently, Gayle shared a collage of two pictures (then and now) in which on one side, he is seen posing with a young Curran dressed in his school uniform, and on the other, on the right, the latest photo with the 20-year-old all-rounder in his Kings XI Punjab jersey. View this post on Instagram This is a special moment for any youngster! All I can say is remember what get you where you at today, @samcurran58 #DreamBigger #GetStronger #BrightFuture #Multitalented - I think in the pic I'm looking young but you're looking younger ð𤣠#Kings ðªð¿ A post shared by KingGayle ð (@chrisgayle333) on Apr 4, 2019 at 10:39am PDT “This is a special moment for any youngster! All I can say is remember what got you where you at today. I think in the pic I'm looking young but you're looking younger,” Gayle wrote. Even Curran replied saying: “Thank you Legend @chrisgayle333 excited for the season ahead playing and learning from you.” Talking of form, both batsmen have been in sublime form in this year's Indian Premier League (IPL). On one hand, where Gayle has consistently been providing a good start to KXIP, Curran on the other, has been crowned as the youngest player ever to take a hat-trick in the league. We hope we see the youngster and his idol play together in the next match when the team goes face to face with the defending kings of the IPL trophy, Chennai Super Kings, on 6th April.
  6. Over the years we have seen sportspersons turning politicians at the end of their playing careers. but have you ever heard of an active sportsperson joining politics? Let's make this question a bit more interesting, 'have you ever heard a foreign active player getting into Indian politics?' According to online reports and social media posts on Thursday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) hired another famous cricketer after Gautam Gambhur to their campaigning squad. Apparently, an image of the Universal Boss Chris Gayle, wearing a saffron Kurta flooded social media. Many believe that the West Indian star is here to campaign for BJP ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. A similar claim was made last year in April, that Gayle storm has entered BJP and was campaigning for Karnataka Assembly elections. The claim was backed by digitally manipulated images of the cricketer. As per the fake post, Chris Gayle is called 'Krishna Goyal' as a joke, and the same meme is being shared all over the place using the same old photoshopped image. Welcome Krishna Goyal urf (Chris Gayle) in BJPðð__||@virendersehwag @henrygayle @SanjayS2022 @lionsdenkxip pic.twitter.com/wYKcgBVWAQ — kunal parira (@parira_kunal) April 27, 2018 ðð Bhakts are so funny! 𤣠— Samiya Latief (@Samiyalatief) March 28, 2019 ð Sanghi Gayle is a joke But Navjot Singh Sidhu joining PTI in coming days is a real possibility. — Gully Boy (@colorfulmonk) March 28, 2019 ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£seems like soon he will be inducted into the RSS wing...a spoof shud be made featuring saangi crish Gayle entering indian politics.... — Vishesh Gupta (@visheshgupta787) March 28, 2019 @hrishidayma1 sanghi gayleð𤣠— Vivek Karwa (@vivekkarwa20) March 28, 2019 Despite this being a piece of fake news, do you think he should join politics after his cricketing career?

  7. Christopher Henry Gayle, probably the best T20 batsman in the world, has once again proven why he owns that title. Opening his Indian Premier League campaign against Rajasthan Royals(RR) on Monday, Gayle of Kings XI Punjab(KXIP) bagged the man of the match award for playing a glorious knock of 79 runs in 47 balls, consisting of 4 sixes and 8 boundaries. Starting off slow and settling himself first was something new that we fans got to witness. Though many would say that he had a particular reason to do that, which was him needing a mere seven more runs to become the fastest person to reach 4000 IPL runs. But even after reaching that peak, he made sure that he played very carefully and didn't start firing straight-away. He took his time and once he was settled, he blasted in all directions of the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

Despite Gayle getting caught by Rahul Tripathi on the ball of Ben Stokes, Sarfraz took the responsibility of his side and took them to a good total of 184 in their share of 20 overs.

And if he continues with the same form, there is no doubt that David Warner or anyone could stand in his path of grabbing the Orange Cap and becoming the leading scorer of the season.
  8. 2018 was a tough year for West Indies batsman and former skipper Chris Gayle, especially when it came to becoming a part of his national team to represent his country in international matches and tournaments. Bad form, injuries and controversies infested the cricketer's career to the point that he wanted to say goodbye to the sport for good back then. What made him stay in touch with the athlete in himself were the league-level tournaments that are now being hosted by most of the top cricketing nations after the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Big Bash League, Pakistan Super League, Bangladesh Premier League, you name it and Gayle was there. However, 2019 brought the hitter some good fortune as the selectors decided to give him one more chance with the ODI series against the visiting England cricket team and another opportunity was all the self-proclaimed 'Universe Boss' was looking for. Playing on a superhuman level Gayle has scored 135, 50 and 162 runs in the first, second and fourth ODI matches against the Englishmen, not only becoming the first person in the history of international cricket to hit more than 500 sixes but also only the second West Indies cricketer to have more than 10,000 runs. What a record! ð³300 sixes and 10,000 ODI runs for the Universe Boss, Chris Gayle! ð´ð´ó §ó ¢ó ¥ó ®ó §ó ¿#MenInMaroon #ItsOurGame #ChrisGayle #GayleForce pic.twitter.com/aM3nDeduSa — Windies Cricket (@windiescricket) February 27, 2019 Even though Eoin Morgan's side is turning out to be way too much of a competition for the Windies, Gayle on his own, is reaching for the stars with his new-found form. Having publicly announced his decision to seek retirement after the ICC World Cup 2019, Gayle is now having second thoughts about his farewell. Overruling their own decision to part ways with the game they love isn't something new as players like Sachin Tendulkar and Shahid Afridi (obviously) have also done so in the past. And clearly, for somebody with Gayle's need to stay in the limelight, the thought of retirement has to be short-lived. "I just have to work on the body, and then maybe you can see a bit more Chris Gayle. Things change quickly,” Gayle said after losing a nail-biting fourth ODI against England. “Hopefully, the body can change in the next couple of months and we can see what happens. What's the matter with the body? I'm nearly 40. But could I un-retire? We'll see. We'll take it slowly." Never change, Universe Boss.
  9. Until yesterday, Barbados, the island nation in the Caribbean, used to be known across the world for being the place where 'Friends' character Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) hooked up with Joey (Matt LeBlanc), but the Windies' 'Universe Boss', Chris Gayle, decided to change that last evening when he caused it to rain sixes on the island against the visiting England cricket team. WHAT A KNOCK. Chris Gayle makes an incredible return to international cricket, reaching his 24th ODI hundred with a single off of Chris Woakes. It's come from exactly 100 balls. Clinical.#WIvENG | FOLLOW â¬ï¸ https://t.co/pQbWOWuEQM pic.twitter.com/0uUFCPJK4h — ICC (@ICC) February 20, 2019 If 'Balls Lost' was a stat maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC), it would have to be Chris Gayle's name on the top of the charts. In a comeback match of his extremely successful career, the 39-year-old was able to get his 24th ODI century. He scored a massive 135 runs off 129 balls while having three 4s and 12 thunderous 6s to achieve this feat. What is crazier than these numbers is the sheer strength Gayle continues to command. There are sixes that just make it beyond the boundary line and then there are the 'Gayle Storm' sixes that disappear somewhere on stadium rooftops or even go out of them. Yesterday, Barbados experienced one such storm. During the beating he put on the Englishmen last evening, Gayle's 12 sixes included a monsterous maximum that travelled for more than 120-m with the ball nowhere to be found. However, the 'ball-finding' experts believe that it may quite possibly be resting on the decks of a ship docked in the adjacent port. But that was just one of eight incidents when the umpires had to introduce a new white ball into the game because of Chris Gayle. Running out of balls in Barbados#ENGvWI Gayle ð¥ð¥ — @RavitejaFan (@asisht84) February 20, 2019 Gayle looked like a batsman fresh in his prime during the first ODI between England and West Indies. Beating Shahid Afridi's record for the most number of sixes (476), Gayle got the top spot in that category when in the 14th over, Gayle sent another one out of the park on a Moeen Ali-delivery. His new found form has come up after a couple of days since the athlete had publicly announced that he would be retiring from One-Day International cricket post ICC World Cup 2019. Although Joe Root and the rest of the English squad was able to chase down the Windies' mammoth total of 360 runs to win the first ODI, Gayle's return to the Caribbean roster in such fashion, just a couple of months before the world cup is nothing but good new for his team.

  10. After splurging a combined amount of a whopping Rs 106.80 crore at the auctions, the eight franchises of the Indian Premier League (IPL) are raring to begin their title chase as one of the world's biggest T20 extravaganza is slated to begin from 23rd March. While the cricket fans anxiously await the 12th edition of the IPL, the two of the league's biggest stars have given us a glimpse of what they're planning to offer this season. David Warner , captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad, has not been in action (on the international stage) owing to his suspension in the infamous ball-tampering case. On the other hand, Chris Gayle, a vital cog in Kings XI Punjab's batting line-up, too, has not played an international game since July, 2018. But, despite that, the two limited-overs specialists undoubtedly know how to put up a show. Currently plying their trade in the ongoing edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), Warner and Gayle are not enthralling cricket fans with their batting skills, but they are adding to the entertainment with their dance moves - a precursor to what we can expect from them in the upcoming season of the IPL . During the clash between Sylhet Sixers and Rangpur Riders, the BPL 2019 clash was lit up by some crazy dance moves. The likes of Gayle and Warner alongside a host of Bangladeshi stars were seen shaking a leg during the match. While Gayle was seen slaying his classic bhangra, Warner, too, was seen pulling off some moves after smacking the Jamaican for a big six. If that wasn't enough, the fact that Warner decided to turn into a right-hander before mercilessly smacking Gayle all-around the park, further left the spectators in awe of his batting prowess. Bangladeshi batsman Liton Das, too, joined the party and showed some moves of his own. In the end, Warner (61) and Das (70) powered their side to a 27-run win. And, while Sylhet Sixers eventually emerged as winners, the likes of Warner, Gayle and Das all won over the fans with their crazy dance moves.
  11. Ever since making his international debut in 2016, Yuzvendra Chahal has become a vital cog in the Indian cricket team's spin bowling department. From breaking partnerships to providing crucial breakthroughs, the leg-spinner, with his ever-increasing variations, continues to aid his side in crunch situations. Bowling in tandem with Kuldeep Yadav, Chahal also forms a formidable partnership in spin bowling for Team India. But, in the Virat Kohli era of Indian cricket, successfully carrying out predefined roles aren't just enough. For a man who emphasises on fitness, Kohli demands its players to be agile and fit to perform in other departments of the game. Thus, we have seen the new-age Indian cricketers spending quality time in the gym to raise their fitness levels. View this post on Instagram Trying to UP the game down under #stayahead #IndvsAus A post shared by Yuzvendra Chahal (@yuzi_chahal23) on Nov 20, 2018 at 3:46am PST Chahal was probably doing the same when he shared a brief video of himself on the social media. Taking to Instagram, the Indian spinner uploaded his workout video where he was seen sweating it out in the gym as part of India's fitness session ahead of the first T20I against Australia. "Trying to UP the game down under #stayahead #indvsaus," he wrote on Instagram. While the 28-year-old failed to make the cut for India's playing XI at the Gabba, he thronged the social media for all the wrong reasons - courtesy Chris Gayle. Responding to Chahal's post, the Jamaican marauder took a dig at his former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammate by writing: "Lord help me". On the other hand, while Chahal was sitting out, his compatriot Kuldeep took two wickets at the expense of 24 runs in the first T20I against Australia. However, India's decision to play Krunal Pandya backfired big time as the allrounder gave away 55 runs in a mere four overs, conceding six sixes as Australia romped to a competitive total of 158/4 in the rain-hit clash which was eventually reduced to 17 overs.
