IPL 2020 will begin on September 19 & KXIP is training in full swing which is quite evident through its social media posts. Recently KXIP posted a video of a training session between Mohammed Shami & Chris Gayle in the nets. The video was captioned as “Pace battery vs. #GayleStorm #SaddaPunjab #Dream11IPL @MdShami11 @henrygayle”. In the video Mohammed Shami can be seen bowling to Gayle in the nets where the West Indies great batsman defends in a best manner.
Also Gayle looks in a good mood ahead of September 19 evident by KXIP’s recent Twitter posts of the batsman. Last season Gayle played in almost 13 matches scoring 490 runs. He also registered a 99 run high score in IPL’s 2019 edition. In all he garnered 45 fours, 34 sixes too. Whereas Shami is the star bowler of KXIP bowling 324 deliveries in total & garnering 469 runs.
