I’m sure they will have it in the back of their mind, ‘Hey, this is the most dangerous batsman they’ve ever seen in cricket’,” quoted Gayle, as saying.Gayle is also very confident in saying that opponents are scared of him, however, they just opt not to admit this on camera.”Can’t you tell? You go ask them. Go ask them on camera. They’re going to say, no, they’re not scared.But you ask them off the camera, they going to say, ‘Yeah, he’s the man. He’s the man.’ They’re going to say, ‘he’s the man’,” he said. “But they won’t say it (on camera), they won’t be frank and upfront and say, ‘Listen to me straight up, Chris Gayle is the man,” he added.Universe Boss Gayle has hammered 326 sixes in Indian Premier League (IPL), most by any player.
