The International Cricket Council (ICC) has shared a compilation of funny acts by West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle on the field. The self-proclaimed ‘Universe Boss’, Gayle never fails to catch attention, no matter whether he is on or off the cricket ground. He is one of those cricketers with the least number of haters. While batting, he entertains his fans with sixes and fours and while fielding, Gayle often makes people laugh with his funny acts.
Sharing the compilation of Gayle’s funny moments, the ICC wrote, “Need a good mid-week laugh? We've got you covered! Here's Chris Gayle at his entertaining best. Universe Boss or Universal Showman? Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes.”
In some of the clips, he is seen teasing batsmen in a funny way, while in a few, Gayle can be seen doing pushups or dancing after taking a wicket. One of the clips in the compilation shows him imitating star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring a goal while practicing on a field. Ronaldo's trademark style of celebrating goals is quite popular among football fans and Gayle exactly copied that.
Gayle is also seen taking up the role of a cameraman in the video shared by the ICC.
