World T20: Of Chris Gayle and prophetic tweets
We all know Chris Gayle loves a party on the field as he smashes the bowlers around. But off the field he can turn up the party fever in true Jamaican style and show he is truly the king of good times.
Chris Gayle surprised one and all with his prophetic tweet after the first semi-final that Sri Lanka will play the West Indies in Sunday's final but he took it upon himself to ensure that he lived up to his remark.
"So its Sri Lanka vs W.I in the final Sunday :)...Hard luck Pakistan!! Now I know who Pakistan will be supporting!. Blessed all...1 Luv!!"," Gayle had tweeted after Thursday's first semi-final.
Some might term it as an arrogant remark but if you are Christopher Henry Gayle then it's the proverbial Jamaican swagger.
He butchered the Aussie bowlers with clinical efficiency and ensured that his side has an unbeatable score to defend as he scored a swashbuckling 75 off only 41 balls to power his side to a imposing 205 for 4.
