Gayle failed to score runs with the bat, but he surprised everyone by taking a wicket on the very first ball of his bowling spell. After getting the wicket off his very first ball by dismissing South Africa opener Reeza Hendricks, Gayle broke into a cartwheel-like celebration.

After taking the wicket, ‘Universe Boss’ was seen doing cartwheel in the middle of the ground. Gayle’s unique style of celebrating the wicket was very much loved by his fans.  Veteran Dale Steyn took to Twitter to praise Gayle’s cool style and wrote, ‘Chris Gayle is the coolest cricketer alive.’

Batting at a strike rate of 204, Pollard scored 51 runs in just 25 balls and remained unbeaten to power West Indies to 167/6.  Chasing the target of 168 runs to win, South Africa could only manage just 146 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in 20 overs.
