Watch: RCB stars Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle dance together to Shane Watson's music
Chris Gayle marked his return to India and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team in style. The big-hitter, along with his teammate and captain Virat Kohli, danced together to bring the house down.
Gayle had gone back to Jamaica to be with his partner Natasha Berridge and their newborn daughter and ended up missing two Indian Permier League (IPL) games.

Gayle and Kohli boogied in celebration to Shane Watson's tunes. The Australian belted out popular hits like Salt n Pepa's 'Twist And Shout' on stage while the Bangalore batsmen danced with abandon.
Gayle and Kohli are known to be great friends off the field and their great chemistry during the impromptu dance made it a delightful sight.
Watch them dance-off in joy below.
Earlier, Watson had teamed up with AB de Villiers' wife, Danielle de Villiers, to put up a performance together. The allrounder showed off his guitar and singing skills with a singing duet with Danielle. They covered David Guetta's hit 'Titanium' to the delight of the crowd, while ABD and their son watched with pride.
“Little AB saw his Mom perform for the 1st time last night. Special times!” de Villiers posted on Instagram.
The South African did not join the pair on stage, but his singing talents are well recorded. He released a bilingual pop album with singer-songer Ampie du Preez in 2010, called Maak Jou Drome Waar (Afrikaans for Make Your Dreams Come True), which featured a series of power ballads.
While the RCB stars are having a lot of fun and providing entertaining off the field, they certainly will be hoping to shine with the bat and ball as well. Their team is currently seventh in the IPL standings and play the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday.
Left-arm medium fast bowler Khejroliya, who is already part of the Delhi Capitals team's bio-bubble as a net bowler, was readily included in the main squad.
With IPL 2021 set to resume from 19 September in the UAE, the KL Rahul-led Punjab Kings find themselves in the sixth spot on the table after three wins and five defeats.
The IPL 2021, which was suspended midway into the league in May owing to multiple COVID-19 cases in its bio-bubble, will resume in the UAE on Sunday and Chahal will be one of the many players trying to reclaim his place in the national team.
