IPL 2017: Watch Royal Challengers Bangalore's Chris Gayle talk about fatherhood, private life and more

The flamboyant Chris Gayle makes a larger than life impact both on and off the field. In this episode of 'Life Beyond Cricket', Mithila Mehta catches up with the swashbuckling Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) player for a heart-to-heart chat.

Gayle opens up about his life off the field and away from the spotlight while giving us a glimpse into his private world. His ways of partying are legendary, and he tells us what goes on in these parties (“I don’t go to parties, the parties come to me,” he quips). Most people don’t know that he became a father last year to a baby girl with his partner Natasha. Gayle tells us more about what he’s like as a father to his firstborn (and whether he’s a strict dad!).

On an emotional note, Gayle talks about the heart surgery that he had in 2005 and the impact that it’s had on his life. He also admits that was the one time in life he’s been most scared—can you imagine Chris Gayle being scared of anything? Finally, he lets us in on the secret behind all his smashing sixes. Tune in!
