Chris Gayle was back to his brutal best as he smashed the Gujarat Lions to all parts of the field in their encounter at the Saurashtra Cricket Association.
The Jamaican marauder took a special liking to Ravindra Jadeja as he smoked 21 runs in a single over. He also got to his half-century in 23 balls with a huge six over long on and then broke out into a unique celebration which has taken over the sporting world.
It is called the salt bae' phenomenon and it has broken through all over the world.
What is the Salt Bae celebration
Here is the original salt bae: Turkish Chef
This new hot property has already taken the world by storm and has spread its root through European football. The NFL Pro Bowl was not very far behind as the players came up with their own ‘salt bae’ versions.
The chef’s delicate and intricate steak seasoning videos have generated huge fervour all across social media and his latest salt sprinkling video earning him the nickname ‘Salt Bae’.
Coming back to the match, Gayle was not amongst the runs in the tournament so far and there were plenty of theories floating around regarding his position in the squad. However, owing to the injury to AB de Villiers, he got another chance to prove his mettle and this is where he took the chance with both hands.
He took his time early on and then pressed on the accelerator and dished out special treatment to Ravindra Jadeja and then Dwayne Smith. In this match, he also got to his 10,000 runs in T20 cricket and was the first cricketer to achieve this feat.
Eventually, he was dismissed for 77 from 38 balls to a searing yorker by young Kerala bowler Basil Thampi.
