Chennai, Sep 9: Flamboyant West Indies batsman Chris Gayle feels he should start his own dancing show as his fans talk more about his dancing skills than his cricket.
In an interview to Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) website, Gayle, who is in Chennai to promote the ongoing T20 league, said he's trying to learn a few moves so that he can implement it on the field.
"I think I need to start my own dancing show as most people don't talk about my cricket but only about my dancing skills! When I get the chance I try and show a few moves. Maybe I can learn a few moves from them as well! Once I learn the moves I can implement it on the field as well and then it could be more fun," the explosive left-handed-batsman told the website.

Gayle was in Chennai recently on a two-day visit where the Jamaican entralled his fans with his dance moves and watched TNPL matches.
Gayle plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League and therefore enjoys a huge fanbase in every part of India.
When asked about his interaction with school kids and girls with local MOP Vaishnav College the explosive batsman said he was overwhelmed by the response and love.
"I was overwhelmed as the response from the ladies was really fantastic! They were so loud that at one point I expected my ear drum to burst! Also, it is fantastic to go to schools where ladies excel in many sports and not just cricket. I do hope that they continue the good work.
"Though it was only a short visit still it was a great opportunity to interact and share precious moments. I wish them all the best and hope that they continue doing their good work. They must prove that they are a great bunch and must show the strength of a woman," Gayle added. (Dhoni 'too busy' to pick up my calls: Yuvraj)
The 'Universe Boss' also admitted that he, like thousands of other fans, is missing Mahendra Singh Dhoni playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL and described the limited overs captain as the "king" of Chennai and whole of India.
"MS (Dhoni) is king in both Chennai as well as India! It won't be long before he comes back to action (with CSK in the IPL). We have been missing him since the last two years," he said.
