After the Gangnam style, ‘champion’ and Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired celebrations, West Indies star Chris Gayle has come up with another celebration and it is as brilliant as the previous ones.

The under-fire Royal Challengers Bangalore opener roared back to form with a blistering half-century against Gujarat Lions. The hard-hitting batsman was under immense pressure prior to this match, as he had managed just 60 runs in the three matches that he had played in the ongoing tournament. In fact, he was looking so off colour, that he faced the axe in a couple of matches.

But when he was given another chance, the left-handed batsman made sure to prove his mettle with a swift fifty. He began slowly and took three singles in his first five balls to become the first batsman to score 10,000 T20 runs.

But all hell broke loose when he achieved the incredible feat. The very next ball that he faced after achieving the feat was sent into the stands.

He was looking in his elements and completed his fifty off just 23 balls with the help of three fours and five maximums. And as soon as he hit Shivil Kaushik for a 104 meter six to score his third-fastest IPL fifty, he did the famous ‘salt-bae’ impression to celebrate his knock.

The ‘Salt Bae’ is actually Nusret Gokce, a Turkish chef who went viral when a video of him sprinkling salt onto a steak in an overly flamboyant manner garnered huge popularity on Instagram.

Inspired by the Turkish chef, Gayle sat on his knees and poured some soil in a similar manner on his bat.

Watch the celebration:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
