Kings XI Punjab is currently playing against Chennai Super Kings at Mohali.Chris Gayle has been bought into the squad in place of Marcus Stoinis.
Gayle and KL Rahul smashed Chennai bowlers to nook and corner of the stadium as Chennai had no clue on the type of deliveries to bowl.
Gayle announced his return in style by scoring a quick fire half century that included 7 boundaries and 4 huge sixes. He scored 63 off 33 deliveries before getting dismissed by Watson.
Chris Gayle was initially unsold on the day 1 of IPL auctions but Sehwag and his team made sure to pick the batsman on the second day for his base price of 2 crores.
Gayle wasn’t retained by Bangalore franchise for whom he played for seven years. With this knock, Gayle bought a “fear factor” for the oppositions and he will continue to make his opportunities count under the leadership of Ashwin.
This storm by the Universe Boss has strengthened Kings XI Punjab squad and they will be looking forward to ticking their boxes in the coming matches.
This is how Twitter reacted to his scintillating knock
56(24). 7 fours, 4 sixes and 4 singles for Gayle! Why would you bother running!!

CSK must be wondering why they didn’t buy Chris Gayle. He is certainly old enough for them.

Gayle went unsold in the 1st round of auctions. And people paid 11.5 cr for Unadkat. Just saying. #KXIPvCSK

Awesome to see Gayle back striking the ball so cleanly – adds another level to some great cricket already played this past week. Register @StarPickFantasy and take your own game to the next level too @trigam
