SKY is the New Universe Boss? Chris Gayle Gave An Epic Reply: Suryakumar Yadav is currently captaining India and displaying an impressive performance in the ongoing five-match T20I series against Australia. He played a striking innings of 80 runs off 42 balls, including 9 fours and 4 sixes.
In the recent match, he contributed a quick 19 runs off 10 balls as India secured a 2-0 lead with three matches remaining. While Suryakumar Yadav has excelled in T20Is, he faced challenges in one-day internationals and had a disappointing performance in the ICC World Cup 2023.
However, in T20 cricket, Suryakumar Yadav has displayed a completely different form. He has proven to be unstoppable against all opponents in the shortest format of the game. The Indian star is frequently likened to legendary batters AB de Villiers for his striking prowess and Chris Gayle for his dominance. Some have even labeled him as the “New Universe Boss,” acknowledging his absolute dominance irrespective of the conditions, bowling attack, or circumstances. However, Gayle disagrees with the comparison.
Chris Gayle Gave A Smashing Reply When Asked About Comparisons With Suryakumar Yadav
Addressing a question on the sidelines of the Dehradun leg of the ongoing 2023 Legends League Cricket, Gayle vehemently raised his hands in the air, putting an end to the comparisons. He said:
“No, there’s no other Gayle. There will never ever be another Gayle. There will never ever be. It’s only going to be one Universe Boss, just one,”
Meanwhile, Gayle was all praise for the Indian captain Rohit Sharma and his aggressive batting in the ODI World Cup 2023, which played an instrumental role in the team’s success in the mega tournament. En route, he also broke the West Indies legend’s record for most sixes in international cricket.
Congratulating Rohit Sharma on this achievement, Chris Gayle said: “I like his aggressive batting. I want batters to destroy bowlers, and Rohit is one of them who does that.”
Further, Gayle also praised his friend and former IPL teammate, Virat Kohli, for surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most ODI centuries during the recently concluded World Cup campaign. He said:
“Absolutely, man. When I was playing for RCB, he was already phenomenal, even in ODI cricket. It was no secret back then. It was all right there in front of all of us, and from there to see him get to the 50th century in ODI cricket, that’s unbelievable. To break a legend’s record like Sachin, that’s fantastic. We have to give the guy as much credit he deserves. That’s phenomenal. And I don’t see anyone getting close to that or breaking that.”
