The ongoing season of Abu Dhabi T10 League has been quite an entertaining one so far. The first couple of days have produced some exciting action and fans are really enjoying this edition of the tournament. On Saturday, it was Liam Livingstone who hogged all the limelight with his breathtaking knock of 68* off only 23 deliveries to set up a big win for Team Abu Dhabi.
But even before the cricket lovers could digest the heroics of Livingstone, they were presented with another memorable moment on the field. Amid everyone recovering from the previous match, it was time for the toss of the next match with Dwayne Bravo and Faf du Plessis, captains of Delhi Bulls and Bangla Tigers respectively, getting ready for it.
Twist in toss in Abu Dhabi T10 League
However, the toss came with a twist! Instead of the match referee flipping the coin, it was Team Abu Dhabi’s Chris Gayle who was in the middle doing the honours. It was not any joke or prank as Graeme Swann actually asked Gayle to flip the coin and the Universe Boss performed the referee duties.
As it turned out, Gayle’s good friend and fellow countryman – Bravo – won the toss and the duo shared a celebratory hug while having a big laugh. It was indeed a brilliant moment shared between two legends of Caribbean cricket.
However, what made the incident even more hilarious was how Faf du Plessis reacted to the whole situation. When Gayle tried to go and hug the Protean, du Plessis pushed him aside and jokingly asked for a re-toss.

But as expected, there was no love lost between anyone as the two CSK boys (who also share a special bond with each other) shared a hug and smiled to cap off another heartwarming moment. Graeme Swann asked the two of them to give the interview together as fans enjoyed their comradery.
