Indian cricket team's opening pair Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan learned some new dance steps from dance 'guru' Chris Gayle. The West Indies cricketer's love for dance is known to the world. His celebrations are popular among the fans.
Gayle is a fun guy and is never shy to show off his dancing moves. He did it again during the CEAT Cricket Ratings awards on Monday in Mumbai.
The award show was after Indian Premier League (IPL) came to an end on Sunday. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) emerged as the champions after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the final encounter.
Talking about the trio Rohit, Dhawan and Gayle, they didn't disappoint with their dance. The Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit wasn't ready to shake a leg, but later got convinced after Gayle showed an easy move. Dhawan aka Gabbar was already in the flow and received applaud too.

In the awards department, India captain Virat Kohli was picked as the International Cricketer of the Year. Rohit received the award in absence of Virat. Dhawan too was awarded the International Batsman of the Year Award, while New Zealand pace sensation Trent Boult won International Bowler of the Year Award.
The T20 Bowler of the Year Award went to Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan who has been brilliant with the ball even in the IPL 2018. Lifetime Achievement Award winner former India stumper Farokh Engineer lauded the Afghanistan leggie for his brilliant display.
"I love his attitude towards the game. He is always smiling and looks to be enjoying. Sorry, you didn't enjoy much yesterday. But keep up that spirit. You're a great ambassador for your country. I think you should be the Prime Minister of Afghanistan," said Engineer.
