Chris Gayle is quite a character — on and off the field. He has an omnipresent smile, full of good-natured mischief. Gayle believes in living life to the full and his positive energy is totally refreshing. Whether he is belting sixes at will, celebrating a wicket, or doing the Gangnam dance or making funny gestures behind a player interviewed on television, Gayle is the heartthrob of the cricketing world.

One only needs to look at his fan following to appreciate why he is the king of social media. And he is like an open book — be it charming women, enjoying his drinks or having blast with friends. There is not even a semblance of hypocrisy in the Jamaican. He is a character who lives his life on his own terms. And he likes to fancy himself as “Universe Boss.” And why not!
