Chris Gayle is that guy who bonds with anyone and everyone. Irrespective of which team he is playing for international or T20 league in any part of the world, he just does his thing and is loved across the spectrum. In the Indian Premier League, he represented Kings XI Punjab for the 11th edition and made more than a few friends there. One of his KXIP buddies KL Rahul posted a belated birthday wishes but pretty much made up for it.

It was the Universe Boss’ 39th birthday yesterday. Rahul who is with the Indian ODI team playing the Asia Cup didn’t find the time to log on to social media or forgot to wish his mate. He posted a picture of the two together from the IPL where Gayle is wearing the Orange Cap. The Indian Test opener asked the Jamaican to stop taking his hat.

Rahul wrote- “Stop taking my hat from me Boss!” He also apologised for wishing late but hopes the Boss has an awesome year ahead, also raised the glass to more destruction. “Sorry for the late wishes but wishing u an Awesome year ahead. To more destruction!! Happy Birthday Universe Boss! @henrygayle” KL tweeted.

Here is his post:

The two formed a destructive pair for the Kings XI at the top of the order. Gayle has of late opted for a more watchful approach and Rahul who is in the form of his life slayed his blade. In the few matches, they really got going, not a lot was left for the other batsmen to deal with.

It was the Indian who was the real deal in the KXIP top order and at times even took the game down to the wire on his own.

Rahul and Gayle might find one another on the opposite side when Windies tours India, Gayle should find a place in the limited-overs team and Rahul will want the same for himself.
