T20 superstar Chris Gayle has credited legendary former Sri Lankan captain and Team Abu Dhabi Mentor Kumar Sangakkara for giving him a pep talk before the West indies batting legend scored a quick-fire 84 off 22 balls in the T10 League 2021.
The universe Boss took the Maratha Arabians’ bowling attack to the cleaners in match No. 20 of the T10 League at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Gayle scored the match-winning half-century in just 12 balls which currently stands as the joint-fastest fifty scored in the T10 League.
“We never stop learning. Sanga, you’re the man, you’re a legend,” Gayle said after the match.
“I had picked up a few good tips from Sangakkara, who is a legend of the game, about my batting and was more alert today”
