Chris Gayle and Amitabh Bachchan have turned out to be big fans of each other

Chris Gayle has been hitting sixes in all parts of the world, but that hasn’t been the only thing he has been doing. He has been doing promotional work for Spartan Sports, even going to the extreme of playing with a golden bat in a match in the Big Bash League.

As part of this campaign, Gayle sent an autographed Spartan bat over to Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan – and what’s more, it was one of his famous golden plated bats.

Bachchan is a confessed fan of the West Indies bludgeoner, and was ecstatic at receiving the gift. Some sceptics, however, questioned under the post itself if Gayle had ever seen any of his films.

Bachchan tweeted that it had been a revelation for him to know that not only did Gayle know him, but that he would admire his style and his films as well. Gayle replied saying that an encounter was due between the two of them – a meeting which might take place in the World T20 in India which starts in March.

Gayle is part of the West Indies contingent that will be looking to reclaim the World T20 crown they had won in 2012.
