'Universe Boss' Gayle Returns To Pakistan Super League
Self-proclaimed "universe boss" Chris Gayle will help ring in the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League in Karachi on Saturday, with spectators returning to stadiums for the first time in a year.
The West Indies batsman headlines a slimmer roster of international cricketers joining the Twenty20 league in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Gayle will be suiting up with the Quetta Gladiators against title holders Karachi for his first T20 appearance on Pakistani soil.
"The universe boss is here in Pakistan alright," he said in a video message released by the team. "All my Pakistan fans, I am looking forward to entertaining you... so stay tuned."
Gayle plays three matches before returning home for a series against Sri Lanka, returning for the last leg of the tournament taking place in Karachi and Lahore through to March 22.
