Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) spinner Yuzvendra Chahal compared his and Chris Gayle's friendship with the popular Disney characters Timon and Pumbaa from the animated film The Lion King.
Timon and Pumbaa are famous for their friendship and Chahal feels his bonding with Gayle is similar to them. The duo used to play together for RCB and that's when their friendship grew.
They can be often seen having banter with each other on social media. Recently, after Chahal had posted a video on Instagram, Gayle had jokingly threatened to report his page.
Sharing a picture with Gayle after the match between RCB and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Gayle wrote, "Timon & pumbaa reunites #hakunamatata."
In the final over between RCB and KXIP on Thursday, Gayle and Chahal came one-on-one. The leggie had to defend 2 runs in the last over against the Caribbean power-hitter, and he nearly managed to pull off a miracle until another West Indies batsman, Nicholas Pooran came to the crease and smashed a six off the last ball.
Currently, RCB are at number three in the points table, while KXIP are struggling at the last spot.
