New Delhi: West Indies batsman Chris Gayle when joined Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), has got an opportunity to stay in the house of his team owner Vijay Mallya’s Beachfront mansion in Goa.
Gayle has recalled his memories in his autobiography “Six Machines: I Don’t Like Cricket…I Love It”, which was published by Penguin Random House.
The hard hitter batsman shares that during his stay at mansion he spent five days as “the king of the villa” and rode three-wheeler Harley Davidson bike.
Gayle heard of Mallya’s villa from team manager George Avinash, while playing for RCB in the IPL tournament.
Luckily, there was a five days break between the two matches and Gayle was desperate to visit the Mallya’s mansion.
“What to do? George pipes up again. ‘Believe me, big man; you should definitely check it out.’ Oh-kay. What could possibly go wrong? So I decide to go by myself. Fly down there, picked up in a sweet car and driven to Candolim, come down the driveway and what?”.
Gayle writes, “It’s bigger than most hotels. It’s cooler than any house I have ever seen”.
