Gayle: Dances like a butterfly, stings like a bee!

Gayle: Dances like a butterfly, stings like a bee!

He dances like a butterfly, but stings like a bee! The song best described the great Mohammad Ali, now can be appropriately be used to depict Chris Gayle, literally.

First the storm, and then the dance! The sounds of the willow spanking the white leather and the white leather tanking the wickets took a rhythmic stance at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, much to the joy of thousands of fans inside the stadium and the millions outside. It was music to their ears.

The sounds of the willow spanking the white leather and the white leather tanking the wickets took a rhythmic stance at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, much to the joy of thousands of fans inside the stadium and the millions outside. It was music to their ears.

Chris Gayle danced. First with his willow, then returned later to add some more music with the ball. After Gayle left the centrestage, somebody said, even if I had Alzheimer, I wouldn't possibly forget this incident. If Sehwag's 56 ball 119 was something, then anaylse this: Gayle made 49 ball 107. 10 boundaries and 9 over it. Most of them landed amongst the spectators, giving them catching practices. One left the stadium. The Calypso was already dancing.

It wasn't for nothing that Gayle has crossed his towering figure with his reputation. Of brutal power, of marauding use of the wood and a sweet assassin of the bowlers. The best (or some would say the worst), he does all that with a smile on his face. If that wasn't the end of the retribution on the opposition, he then picks up the ball and dares the opponent to return him the treatment. Much like what he did to the Punjab Kings. A 3/17 figure in a T20 match will make the best of the spinners look in awe, but coming from a batsman of murderous reputation, its like a thousand choir singing to help the steps of another thousand dancers. Obviously so when one marches up to a 85 run victory - a huge margin considering a 20-20 match. Sreenath Aravind was the other architect in bowling too, notching up his best IPL figures of 4/14.

But Gayle danced alone on the field. With his arms stretched like the albatross. The steps crossing each other in rhythmic choreography. He, however, remains modest. Post match, while receiving the Man of the Match award, Gayle said, "My celebration is the tuk-tuk train, that is a regular thing for me. Things will happen when I am out there. I am unpredictable, and got to try and enjoy the IPL."

So better watch out for this tuk-tuk!
