Chris Gayle, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan grooved at the CEAT cricket awards night function. The awards night saw the biggest names from the cricketing fraternity turn up and it seemed all the cricketers had a whale of a time. Some danced like there was no tomorrow. The three cricketers we are focusing on are arguably some of the biggest names. Virat Kohli, the Indian captain also graced the occasion, he bagged the CEAT International Cricketer of the year. That probably was the biggest honour on the night. Other cricketers like Rashid Khan, Shubman Gill also picked up awards. And as expected Universe Boss Christopher Henry Gayle bagged the Popular Choice Award. Dhawan also picked up the International batsman of the Year Award. Trent Boult, the high-flying Kiwi lapped up the International Bowler of the year award.

It was also extremely heart-warming to see Chris Gayle in his Punjabi avatar, with a turban on his head. It seems he is still suffering from the Punjabi hangover.
