Flamboyant West Indian opener Chris Gayle is just in complete awe of India’s limited overs skipper MS Dhoni. Gayle, in a recent conversation in Bangalore said that Dhoni was an undoubted legend of the game and deserved all the possible appreciation.
Gayle also said that the underperforming Indian ODI and T20I captain would bounce back.
Speaking about his relationship with MS Dhoni off the field, Gayle said, “We actually get on well off the field. Like I mention, we are very competitive in the middle. But I actually love to be on stage with MS. He is a lovely guy. I hope all the Indian fans can say the same, all the people around the world can say the same about MS Dhoni. The chance to share the stage with him is fantastic.”
“Legend like him in my book has done great in ODIs for the Indian cricket. He has done so many things for India by keep winning. And then losing two series, everyone has put big stick over his head. He is a champion. He will surely bounce back”, Gayle said.
Gayle backed South Africa to win the test series against India and said, “South Africa are the favourites. I am actually saying on the basis of what has happened in the ODI series. They are going for an important game and the first Test can actually decide the series as well. So hopefully India can get a good start.”
