IPL 2020: Gayle has brought a lot of energy in KXIP team, says Tendulkar


India cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar thinks that addition of Chris Gayle into Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) team has brought a lot of energy in the team and KXIP hasn’t been finished yet as they’ll fight for play-off surely.

IPL 2020: Gayle has brought a lot of energy in KXIP team, says Tendulkar

Adding West Indian hard-hitter into the squad has given KXIP straight fourth win in their last 4 matches. They won only one match in their first 7 matches. KXIP beat the table toppers- Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last few matches. And they registered another win against Sunrisers Hyderabad yesterday in Dubai.

With the win, they’re standing at fifth in the point table and qualifying for play-off is still very possible for them.

“Well, he (Chris Gayle) has brought a lot of energy in the team and there are certain players with the way they play, their style, the statement they make with the hard-hitting shots. It has a positive impact on the team and that is exactly what has happened. Although I know KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been batting well. Nicholas Pooran is another dangerous guy and the addition of Chris Gayle makes a dangerous batting line-up,”

Tendulkar said in a video on his social media, according to India Today.

“So, it’s not over yet. You never know, in this format, you only need the momentum to take you forward and Gayle has managed to do that for the team and with the other guys in the team, it’s not over yet for Kings XI Punjab. The energy that the dressing room brings after the victories, three back to back victories is infectious.”
