Chris Gayle, the self-proclaimed Universal Boss, has already got Indian fans excited with the announcement that he will feature in the upcoming IPL 11 for Kings XI Punjab. It was a last-minute selection by Kings XI Punjab after the Jamaican was let go the first time during auctions. Gayle has been a big crowd-puller in India and his participation will not only help increase the revenues but the entertainment quotient will be high as well. Remember the ‘gangnam’ style which took the cricketing world by storm?
Gayle by his own admission is a person who is high on life and likes to live in the present. Now that Gayle will be playing for Kings XI Punjab, he seems to have picked up the famous Punjabi dance — Bhangra! We have seen Virat and Shikhar Dhawan do the bhangra really well, but can Gayle match up to them? Gayle seems to be doing the bhangra to a famous Punjabi number — Mundian To Bach Ke. Wearing a life jacket, the Carribean cricketer can be seen enjoying himself by doing some ‘bhangra’ as well as pulling off some other Bollywood dance moves.
In previous IPL editions, Gayle played for teams like Kolkata Knight Riders and last year he represented Royal Challengers Bangalore. He is a destructive batsman who holds the record for highest individual runs in an innings by a batsman in IPL — he scored 175 against Pune Warriors. That is a big feat in the shortest format and Gayle is a master at it.
