Karachi: West Indies batting legend Chris Gayle has been the talk of the town in Pakistan since last night after he announced to come.
The 41-year-old Gayle’s tweet came after New Zealand abandon their tour of Pakistan on Friday.
“I’m going to Pakistan tomorrow, who coming with me?” he tweeted with a wink emoji
However, Gayle is busy in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in UAE but his solidarity with Pakistan cricket stands out the most during this tough time.
I’m going to Pakistan tomorrow, who coming with me? 😉🙌🏿

It must be noted that Pakistan and New Zealand had to play three ODIs and five T20Is from September 17 to October 3, however after an escalation in the New Zealand Government threat levels for Pakistan and advice from NZC security advisors on the ground, the tour was canceled.
