West Indies opening batsman Chris Gayle, popularly known as ‘Universe Boss’ on Saturday shared a picture with Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, who is currently in the Caribbean Islands rooting for Trinbago Knight Riders in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL). SRK owns the franchise based in Trinidad and Tobago in the T20 league. Gayle shared the picture on Instagram and wrote “#40SHADESOFGAYLE September 20th @iamsrk #NuffRespect,” as the caption.
The two stars are seen dressed in black and smiling at the camera.
Take a look:
Gayle had sparked retirement rumours by his antics during the final ODI of the three-match series against India. However, he went on to deny the rumours and said he will be with West Indies cricket until further notice. In a video posted by Windies Cricket, Gayle said “I didn’t announce any retirement. Yeah, I am still with West Indies cricket until any further notice”.
Gayle went on to play a knock of 72 runs in the final ODI of the three-match series against India and every Indian player congratulated Gayle on the field, which led to speculations that the left-handed batsman might just have played his last match for the team from the Caribbean.
The 39-year-old Gayle is West Indies’ all-time run-scorer in ODIs with 10480 runs from 301 matches. Gayle had made his international ODI debut in 1999 against India in Toronto. He has registered 25 hundred and 54 fifties in ODI cricket.
