For the yesterday’s match in Feroshah kotla, it is the spectators in the stands who where the real fielders since as to them was the ball dropping by in frequent intervals- the result of Chris Gayle phenomenon.
Chris Gayle was ferocious in his shots woven with his flamboyant style. The ease at which he smashed the ball to the stands made the bowlers clueless. At one moment it even made the rival captain to laugh at looking at his sixes. The home crowd made a transition in supporting the guest team in awe of his entertaining shots, he made the crowd to look up in the air almost all through his innings because of his thirteen sixes.
The most interesting aspect of him in this IPL season is he competes with self in the highest sixes category and this feet is possible only by him. It reminds me of the legend of his own country Sir Vivian Richards who was of this kind in hitting sixes. Nevertheless one can forget the powerful and ferocious shots of all West Indian players.
Yesterday’s high voltage innings by Chris Gayle was to make their team climb up in Net Run Rate. And its no wonder if Chris Gayle’s hat gets the maximum bidding price, let say 50 crore in the next IPL season. Let us all hope that he continues to be in good form and entertain us.
