Gayle Blasted The Cricket World With A Century And Asked To Put Respect Before His Name

If anything which the fans were missing in this year’s IPL was a Gaylestorm. Well! Definitely, IPL is incomplete without Gayle. Kings XI Punjab owner Preity Zinta and current coach Virender Sehwag who decided to take the risk of picking up the left-hander for his base price might be the happiest person on the planet right now.

Moreover, this was a great reply from the 38-year-old batsman after he was ignored twice by the franchise owners as well as teammate Virat Kohli in this year’s auction,

On Thursday, as Punjab were facing Sunrisers Hyderabad,  a hungry and determined Gayle gave the bowlers a lesson which they can never forget in their life.  Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have one of the most ferocious bowling attacks in IPL were left devastated as the West India batsman kept on smashing them for sixes to hit his sixth century in IPL history.

Meanwhile, Hyderabad who was on high in confidence with three consecutive victories received a shocking defeat against Punjab.

Gayle was unstoppable as he smashed the world’s top-ranked T20 bowler Rashid Khan for 26 runs in the fourteenth over as Hyderabad fell short of 15 runs of the target.  The swashbuckling batsman slammed an unbeaten 104 off 63 deliveries to gift his team third victory of the season.

While it was a good day for the Chris Gayle, he gave full credit to Virender Sehwag, who likes Gayle revolutionised cricket, saying “I think Virender Sehwag saved the IPL by picking me (in the January auctions).”

Clearing his intentions, he said, “Everyone says I have a lot to prove. I am just here to put some respect on my name.”

After winning the match, Virender Sehwag wrote a hilarious Tweet, “he had saved IPL by picking up Gayle at the IPL auction.”

Confirming to this, the Jamaican replied, “yes”

After seeing the King of T20 cricket getting back in his form, team players and franchise owners are going to have a tough time in this IPL.

So, now it’s time for KKR?
