After setting the cricket pitch afire with batting pyrotechnics in the IPL, swashbuckling West Indian Chris Gayle is cooling down, literally. Enjoying a holiday with his family in Kollam (Kerala), he preferred a wet pitch to test his talents – fishing in the Kerala backwaters.

However, he was not quite lucky with the fish as he has been with the runs, not netting many fish in the process. Evidently, luck is not on his side when he is on a new pitch altogether.

Staying at a luxury hotel, Gayle is accompanied by his wife, daughter, and his mother-in-law.

Gayle checked in yesterday (Sunday) and will stay for the next few days. That’s all I can tell you.

On Monday, Gayle – who is making news with his cricketing exploits with Kings XI Punjab – along with his family went for a joyride on a boat in the backwaters.

He is also attending yoga classes at the hotel, besides trying out the world famous ayurveda massages of Kerala.

The swashbuckling southpaw is also trying many Kerala dishes, feasting on pearl spot –a fish found in the state's lakes.

He is slated to return to action on 3 May, when he will fly to Indore to rejoin his IPL team that plays their next match on 4 May against the struggling Mumbai Indians.
