So, What is the “Salt Bae” celebration?

The Original salt bae: Turkish Chef.

The Turkish chef’s delicate and intricate steak seasoning videos have gone viral across social media. His latest salt sprinkling video gave him the nickname ‘Salt Bae’.

Back to the IPL, it will be very important for RCB that Chris Gayle performs in the upcoming matches and they build the momentum.
