IPL 2019: Chris Gayle certainly times the ball better with the bat than with his legs. It was hilarious to see Gayle trying to stop the ball with his foot, only to help it over the boundary. It was not intentional from Gayle but it came out in a very hilarious fashion. Gayle was chasing the ball after Williamson sliced one of the outside edge. The ball went over Gayle who was at short third man. He chased the ball but just when he was about to bend his foot touched the ball and it was a boundary.
Here is the hilarious video:
Meanwhile, chasing a mammoth 213 to win, KXIP was hoping for a flyer from Gayle. It did not happen as he was dismissed for four off three balls. His wicket was a huge setback for KXIP.
Earlier in the day, David Warner notched up his eighth half-century of the season to end his Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign this season in style, as Sunrisers Hyderabad posted 212/6 in 20 overs against Kings XI Punjab in a key match here on Monday.
Warner, who is by far the tournament’s highest scorer, smashed a typically belligerent 81 off 56 balls, his innings laced with seven fours and two sixes.
Warner, who will leave for Australia to be part of their World Cup camp, was removed by Kings XI skipper R. Ashwin in the 16th over but the damage was already done by then with Manish Pandey (36; 25b; 3×4; 1×6), Wriddhiman Saha (28; 13b; 3×4; 1×6) and Mohammad Nabi (20; 10b; 2×6) contributing to the total.
For the visitors, Ashwin (2/30) was the pick of the bowlers as Mujeeb Ur Rahman, returning to the team, was taken for 66 runs in his four overs, including one in which the Afghanistan spinner leaked 26 runs, the most expensive spell of bowling this IPL.
