Chris Gayle Has Triggered A Huge Controversy On Twitter: Ever since the New Zealand cricket team abandoned their tour of Pakistan, social media has been divided into two parts.

The sudden move sparked anger among many current and former players.

On Sunday, he took to his Twitter and extended his support behind Pakistan in its time of need. In his Tweet, in a jest, said he is willing to travel to Pakistan. He wrote:
“I’m going to Pakistan tomorrow, who coming with me?”

While the Pakistan cricket fans were left in awe of the modern legend and appreciated him for supporting the country. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) also retweeted his Tweet from their official handle. Pakistan’s Mohammad Amir, too reacted to the West Indies’ opener’s comment.
