On Tuesday, KXIP’s Opening batsman Chris Gayle confirmed that he will play in the KXIP’s squad against RCB on Thursday. KXIP & RCB will face each other on October 15 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
The left-handed batsman was admitted to the hospital but now he has recovered from stomach infection & is currently training with the team. “To all the fans out there, the wait is over. The Universe Boss is back. I know you all have been waiting for such a long time and the wait is over,” Chris Gayle said in a video posted on KXIP’s official Twitter handle.
“Unless something drastic happens to the Universe Boss again, which I hope not. You know it’s still possible. I know we are at the bottom of the table but it is still possible,” he added.
KXIP are currently placed at the bottom of the IPL 2020 Points Table with just two points scored from seven matches. However Chris Gayle believes that his team still can make it to the playoffs of the IPL 2020. “Seven games to go, we believe we can win all seven it is still possible. I urge each and every one of the guys to still have that self-belief as I said, the only way we can go is up is only up from here. So we gonna do it, we can do it,” said Gayle.
