MS Dhoni

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Chris Gayle are regarded as two of the most dangerous batsmen in the cricket world. Both batsmen can turn the game in a matter of a few deliveries. Both possess the ability to hit the ball hard and send the ball out of the park with consistency. Chris Gayle holds the record for the highest individual score (175) in the history of the Indian Premier League.

Today it is the birthday of the Universe Boss Chris Gayle, and on his special day, an old tweet made by MS Dhoni about him has been going viral on the micro-blogging platform. MS Dhoni made this tweet on the day when Chris Gayle played a 175-run knock against the Pune Warriors India team. At that time, Gayle was a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team.
