Never one to withdraw from a fight, Chris Gayle has lashed out at Ian Chappell. After Gayle s Big Bash League (BBL) incident involving Mel McLaughlin, Chappell had called for a worldwide ban for the former. At the CEAT awards night in Mumbai, Gayle, when asked to respond to Chappell’s comment, Gayle shot back: “Who’s Ian Chappell?.

Chappell had urged Cricket Australia to ban Gayle: “I wouldn’t have a problem if Cricket Australia said to the clubs, ‘he’s never to be contracted again in this country’.” Gayle was fined USD 10,000 by his franchise, Melbourne Renegades. He had later apologised, saying it was a “simple joke”.

Donning a white turban, Gayle showcased his dance moves at the same event along side Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. Gayle went on to emulate Dhawan’s trademark on-field celebration as well.
