A week after Chris Gayle made his infamous, "don't blush baby" comment, he is still reeling in support from fellow cricketers and cricket lovers.

Former West Indies cricket captain, Darren Sammy took to Instagram on Friday to show his support for Gayle.

He posted a picture of himself and Gayle, which bore the caption,

"They will not take away our smile #smileandbreatheeasy @chrisgayle333 aka #worldboss #dontblushbaby #strongblackmen #blackbrothers."

Jamaica's Andre Russell also used Instagram to support his countryman. He posted a picture of Gayle, simply labelled, "#standbygayle."

Dwayne Bravo was not to be left out of the support team. He too took to Instagram to support his, "boss".

"U the boss an will always be the boss don't change your style for anyone your fans love u love your fans an that's the most important thing as they say in Jamaica REALRICH."

Since the incident, cricket fans all over the world have been creating memes and hashtags supporting Gayle. 

Gayle however, has not been vocal on the issue on social media. But it is clear he is aware his name is trending.

In a post he made two days ago, Gayle was pictured among a group of firemen. He simply captioned the image, 

"Hot name so the #FireMen to the rescue."
