West Indies batsman Chris Gayle is one of the most flamboyant cricketers in the world. The southpaw never ceases to amaze his fans with his antics on and off the field. Gayle's celebrations after reaching milestones are too good to miss. There was a time when Gayle frequently did the 'Gangnam' style dance while celebrating runs or wickets. Now, it's time for the Chris Gayle googly dance which has left the fans amused.
The West Indian is currently playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2021) where he is representing Quetta Gladiators. On Monday, the dynamic left-hander played a sensational knock of 68 off 40 balls against Lahore Qalandars which included five fours and as many sixes before getting dismissed off nemesis Rashid Khan's bowling.
Half-way into the Gladiators innings, during a break, Gayle was unbeaten on 48 and that's when commentator Ramiz Raja requested the cricketer to do the googly dance. Gayle obliged the request as he immediately did the famous 'Chris Gayle googly dance' which delighted the viewers.
