The Universe Boss has well and truly arrived in IPL 2018 and from the looks of it, he is here to stay. Chris Gayle brought up his 6th IPL hundred in emphatic fashion
After a splendid half century against CSK, Chris Gayle has teed off once again against the highly skilled bowling unit of SRH.
An attack comprising of Bhuvi, Rashid, Kaul, Jordan and Shakib, you would have expected Gayle to falter, but the T20 legend managed to find a way, ripping apart the world’s best T20 bowler, striking him for 4 sixes in an over.
Gayle went from strength to strength in his innings, starting off a little watchfully, stringing a partnership together with Rahul, but after Rahul was dismissed, Gayle decided that it was time to launch. And launch he did.
Check out how twitter reacted:
Gayle is going to hit a Six for every second of silence when his name was called at the IPL auction table. #KXIPvSRH

This is a big answer to all the teams that didn’t want to bid for Gayle at the auction. #UniverseBoss

RCB not retained KL Rahul…. he scored fastest fifty of the IPL.
RCB not retained Gayle… he scored a fifty and a centuw in just 2 matches.
RCB retained Sarfaraz and bought McCullum…. they are sitting on the bench.#SRHvKXIP
