The 13th season of the IPL has come half its way and by winning just 2 matches out of the 8 they played, the team of Kings XI Punjab is at the bottom in the point table.
Kings XI Punjab gave Chris Gayle a place in playing 11 of the 8th match and he played a brilliant half-century innings, indicating the team’s decision. Gayle hit 5 sixes in this innings and proved why he is called Universal Boss. But the way the team included Gayle in the playing eleven after 7 matches, raises many questions on the team.
Sachin Tendulkar has also questioned the decision of KXIP of bringing Chris Gayle after 7 matches. He congratulated the Punjab team by tweeting and questioned the decision to keep Gayle out of the team till now.
Sachin wrote, “Good to see @henrygayle
back and scoring a wonderful 53. Wonder what @lionsdenkxip were thinking by leaving him out all this while.”
KL Rahul led Kings XI Punjab beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 wickets in this match. In the match, KL Rahul played an unbeaten innings of 61 runs, while Mayank Agarwal played the innings of 45 runs off just 25 balls and laid the foundation for the team’s victory. Chris Gayle, who came to bat after Mayank Agarwal, scored a brilliant 53 runs on 45 balls. During this, he hit 5 sixes and a four. With this victory, there is still a chance for Kings XI Punjab team to return in this season of IPL.
