‘Gayle storm is back’, Twitter in awe of ‘Universe Boss’ as he powers Windies to series win

Chris Gayle’s first T20I half-century in six years guided the West Indies to a series-clinching six-wicket victory over Australia in the third fixture of their five-match series at the Daren Sammy Stadium in St Lucia on Monday.

Chasing a modest target of 142 after the tourists struggled yet again with the bat, Gayle recaptured his most destructive form in smashing seven sixes and four fours in racing to 67 off only 38 balls to take his team to the target and a 3-0 lead in the series. The hosts won with 31 balls to spare.

He also sent an ominous warning to all opponents that the 41-year-old could yet be a factor in the Caribbean side’s defence of the World T20 title in three months’ time.

Gayle’s pyrotechnics followed another efficient West Indies performance in the field, as wrist-spinner Hayden Walsh again presented the most effective challenge to the Australians, with figures of two for 18 in limiting the visitors to 141/6.

Meanwhile, Twitter was buzzing with tweets in admiration of the ‘Universe Boss’ after his quickfire knock against Australia. Here are a few reactions from the micro-blogging site:
