Out of 14 matches of the team, this batsman played only 7 matches. But then everyone woke up watching the bat that created a storm.
Chris Gayle’s performance is going to be very important for Punjab.
IPL Team Kings XI Punjab has now been named Punjab Kings. With the new name and new jersey, the team is now ready for the new infighting of the IPL starting on April 9. Last time, the KL Rahul-led team could not make it to the playoffs, but it left no stone unturned to give an exciting turn to the league. The credit goes to two West Indies batsmen Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran. Last season, however, Gayle played only 7 out of 14 matches. Just like a hero giving a guest appearance in a film. And these seven matches, like Punjab, had killed their lives in the playoffs campaign.
Before the arrival of Chris Gayle on the field, the struggle of the Punjab team was about whether the team would remain on the eighth position or on the seventh. But as soon as Gayle got fit and landed in the field, the team was transformed as if. Seeing this, Punjab won the match continuously and brought itself into the playoff race. Even like other teams, its price did not depend on the outcome of other teams. Rather, he had an opportunity to win his match and make it to the playoffs, but the team lost in a decisive battle. Despite this, Gayle hit 23 sixes in 7 matches, so much that the Universe boss can be criticized, but he cannot be ignored. This time the strategy of the teams will be to finish the game of Gail as soon as possible.
