Watch: Universe Boss has all the fun, Chris Gayle checks David Warner’s pocket, hugs Mitchell Marsh

Chris Gayle, who has announced to play his last at their home ground in Jamaica, was the man of the hour during the game between Australia and West Indies on Saturday.

Wearing a beaming smile and sunglasses under a helmet, the Universe Boss signed off in style by taking the wicket of Mitchell Marsh. He was in a jovial mood starting from the opening sixes that didn’t change even when he bowled.

He started the day smashing a couple of sixes while scoring 15 runs with the bat. Later, he also bowled an over where he picked the wicket of Mitchell Marsh and quite hilariously went on to hug the Australian and thanked him for the dismissal.

West Indies lost to Australia in their final 2021 T20 World Cup match, but both Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, who played his final game for the West Indies, were given a warm ovation by their teammates as well as the Australian players.

He was seen signing on the camera and also distributed his cricketing gears to the fans in the stands after his team lost the match by eight wickets.

During his fun outing on the day, Gayle’s yet another act caught everyone’s attention. The 42-year-old hilariously checked Warner’s pockets while the latter was batting.

Speaking at the ICC’s post-match Facebook live show, Gayle clarified that he has not yet retired but hinted that he is set to sign off.

Hardik Pandya wants to become the new Dhoni of Team India, talks about his role in the team

With a resounding victory in the third T20, the Indian team won the T20 series against New Zealand 2-1. India’s captain Hardik Pandya was awarded the title of Player of the Series. After the historic 168-run victory in the third T20, Hardik said that his role in the team is now the same as MS Dhoni had.

Captain Hardik put forward his point and said that he has no problem in playing the role that MS Dhoni used to play. Pandya further added that at that time, he was young and was hitting shots all around the ground. But now since Dhoni has left the team, suddenly that responsibility has come on him to play the finisher and he has no objection to it. “We are getting results, if I have to play a little slow then there is no point in that too,” added Pandya.

For the unversed, in the third T20 match, while batting, Hardik played an inning of 30 runs in 17 balls, while bowling, he was successful in taking 4 wickets. Hardik showed a great game in the whole series. Under the captaincy of Hardik, India has succeeded in winning the fourth consecutive T20 series. Captain Hardik in T20, has led Men In Blue in 12 matches and has won 8 of India’s matches.

Moreover, reports even suggest that BCCI and the selectors are all set to announce Hardik Pandya as the regular T20 captain, as they want senior players like Virat Kohli and Rohit to focus on longer formats and add youngsters in the T20 format.

And with this finally India will have split captaincy after a lot written and said about the same. While Virat Kohli wanted to leave the T20 format captain and continue with ODIs and Tests, the then BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was not much in favour and Kohli was ousted from ODI captaincy. Later he himself left the Test captaincy too.
