Chris Gayle is not just an entertainer while batting, but he carries his goofy style throughout the game and off it. The West Indian opener is known for pulling off pranks on opposition players and even the umpires. A similar incident happened during the T20 World Cup match against Australia. The "Universe Boss" was in a fun mood during the match.
The dangerous opener came at the crease in sunglasses and surprised everyone. After smashing two sixes in typical Gayle style, the batter got bowled by Pat Cummins. Gayle, while walking off acknowledged the crowd by raising his bat, hinting at his possible last international match.
However, Gayle brought laughter to his fans' faces when he came to bowl in the second innings. The all-rounder got the wicket of Mitchell Marsh in his last ball and celebrated the wicket with the dismissed batter. Yes, you heard it right! After dismissing Marsh, Gayle hugged Mitchell Marsh from behind as the latter walked off. The moment brought a smile to everyone's face and the video got viral in no time.
