Chris Gayle – One Man Demolition Squad - A Poetry By Padmaja Iyengar
23rd April 2013 is the day which will go down in the history of cricket as one of the most memorable days as our champion Chris Gayle destroyed Pune with his 175*. Close to 10 records were broken and the Gayle was the only talk of the town. RCB Diva Padmaja Iyengar from Hyderabad has written a poetry for our very own Chris Gayle!
Chris Gayle – One Man Demolition Squad
Mr. ‘Supreme Blaster’ Chris Gayle,
Went about his ‘Operation Impale’,
Making all bowling seem absurd,
On this April, the twenty third,
And held Pune Warriors without bail...
His 175 n.o. and 17 sixers’ galore,
Were made of the stuff of folklore,
His demeanor was calm and cool,
His bat worked like a demolition tool,
That left the crowds asking for more...
As he tore into their bowling,
Pune Warriors were left yowling,
Many a record was torn to smithereens,
As balls flew all over n above sight screens,
Spectators were merry and howling...
IPL teams see red,
In the days ahead,
As Gayle seems unstoppable,
And of much more is capable.
All - worked out in his head...
