West Indies batsman, Chis Gayle’s bat roared in the IPL 2017 and defeated Gujarat Lions like a boss. Not only did Gayle scored his first half-century of the IPL 2017, but he also became the first ever batsman to achieve the milestone of 10,000 runs in Twenty20 cricket.
Chris Gayle with his huge sixes, made 77 off just 38 balls. The West Indies batsman was in his prime form as he completed his 50 runs in just 23 balls. As soon as Chris crossed the mark, congratulatory wishes started flooding in.

Tuesday was eventful for Chris Gayle as well as Vijay Mallya! Both were equally trending on social media. Vijay Mallya earlier on Tuesday got arrested by the London police service Scotland Yard on behalf of the Indian authorities in relation to accusations of fraud. But Mallya didn’t take much time to get his bail granted by the Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
However, just a few hours later, Vijay Mallya posted a congratulatory tweet for Chris Gayle. Here is what he tweeted:
Congrats Henry Gayle @henrygayle Universe Boss for an incredible 10,000 runs in T20 cricket

Mallya’s tweet for Gayle was enough for Tweeple to start making fun of him. As soon as Mallya posted his tweet, Twitterati started trolling him for his arrest and the super quick bail.
