But on Thursday he posted on Instagram: “We would like to welcome the arrival of our beautiful daughter ‘Blush’ to this world 2 hours ago”. He later said on Twitter: “Thank you all for the sweet and kind messages.

Gayle missed a game for his Indian Premier League franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore, but he may be back in action as early as Sunday.

Following Gayle’s post, Kohli had also put up a post congratulating the West Indian for his new role as a father and also said that he will be proud to have himself called ‘Uncle Virat’ by junior Chris Gayle.
