Chelsea icon Drogba meets up with cricket superstar Chris Gayle in Dubai

Didier Drogba has taken some time out from his search for a new club to meet up with cricket hero Chris Gayle.

The pair were partying in Dubai and managed to enjoy a drink with each other, as evidenced by Gayle's Twitter and Instagram post.

The big-hitting West Indian, currently with the Karachi Kings, is preparing for the 2017 Pakistan Super League T20 competition which takes place in the UAE from February 9 to March 5.

Gayle posted a snap of the legendary duo with the caption: 'Real Champion @didierdrogba #NuffRespect'.

Chelsea great Drogba, 38, is without a club after leaving MLS side Montreal Impact late last year.
