IPL 2019: This is what happens when former teammates catch up! Ex-RCB cricketer Chris Gayle and Yuzvendra Chahal engaged in a mid-pitch banter at the Mohali stadium while KXIP was hosting RCB. It is hard to figure out what was spoken, but the two cricketers seemed to have enjoyed whatever was exchanged. Chahal with his two wickets has been the best RCB bowler, while Gayle has hit his fifty and is looking good to carry on and help KXIP get to a big first innings score.
Here is the funny banter we are talking about:
Twitter seemed to have loved the interaction as here is how they reacted:
Earlier in the day, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to field against Kings XI Punjab in their Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Punjab Cricket Association I.S. Bindra Stadium, here on Saturday.
The visitors made one change in their team as Umesh Yadav replaced Tim Southee while Punjab included Andrew Tye, Mayank Agarwal and Murugan Ashwin for Karun Nair, David Miller and Ankit Rajpoot.
Punjab is currently placed fifth in the points table whereas Bangalore languish at the bottom after losing all of their six games.
