Amitabh Bachchan had a special guest in his Mumbai house – cricket’s superstar, Chris Gayle. Excited Big B and Gayle broke this ‘news’ on social media on Tuesday. India play the West Indies in an ICC World T20 semifinal at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.
“Chris Gayle pays a visit home … did not know he was a fan .. I was my best behaved and politest .. hoping he would pay back the compliment when we play them on Thursday .. hehe ..,” wrote Amitabh Bachchan in his Facebook page.
The burly Jamaican called Amitabh Bachchan a “legend” and thanked Big B for the hospitality.
“What an absolutely legend, @amitabhbachchan Thanks for the invite and hospitality at your home, thanks also for the books. The boss wants me to score a 100 and India win but I would take the win rather than the 100,” Gayle wrote on Instagram.
Gayle scored the World T20’s only century so far. He smashed a 48-ball hundred to blow away England at Wankhede Stadium. A repeat show will not be good news for MS Dhoni’s Team India on Thursday.
