Indian cricket team legends Anil Kumble is no stranger to the Indian Premier League. The spinner was a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team as a player and later, he also coached the Punjab Kings franchise. While he had the chance of watching hundreds of players – both domestic and international – perform at the competition, he picked the West Indies star Chris Gayle as the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) in IPL history. Kumble praised his destructive style of batting and how he could change any game.

“There are plenty of them; it’s difficult to pick just one. I can certainly look back and say probably Chris Gayle, someone who is larger than life. The way he came across as a player! What he brought to RCB and the way he Sort of changed the whole powerplay and the power he brought to batting,” Kumble said during a Q&A session on JioCinema ahead of the new season of the IPL.

Earlier, in an episode of ‘My Time with Virat’, available on Jio Cinema, Chris Gayle spoke about sharing the dressing room with Kohli, notching up numerous 100-run partnerships, and all the dance moves they perfected together.

“Sharing a dressing room with Virat and the other guys, once I’m there, I’m always jovial and having a lot of fun, dancing and everything like that,” said Gayle.

“I’d show them a few moves and realize Virat’s got the skills. He can move, you know. But if it’s an Indian dance, Chris Gayle will win. If it’s a Caribbean dance, Chris Gayle will win!” he added.
