'Universe Boss' as he has self-proclaimed, Chris Gayle is the undisputed king of entertainment in world cricket. Widely reckoned for his power-hitting and whimsical character off the field, Gayle has been one of the massive entertainers cricket has ever seen. From shaking his legs to walking on the ramp, there is hardly anything Gayle might be missing on his list. If one keeps a close eye on Gayle's social media handles, it will be easy to conclude that Gayle is a party animal and loves his time off the field as dearly as he smashes those big sixes with ease.
Make no mistake, Gayle can come hard on an opponent on the field and give an impression of being an intimidating cricketer but off the field, he's a playful and joyous individual.

The enormous power behind those brutal sixes is a result of hours of painful workouts in the gym. This sight of a totally ripped and muscular Gayle will raise many eyebrows. Can any cricketer beat the giant at bodybuilding?
