The Jamacian and self proclaimed “Universe Boss” Chris Gayle is known for completing cricket matches for his side. Nonetheless, in an intriguing new matchup, Gayle on Wednesday utilized his ‘delicate touches’ to score a training objective during the Indian Premier League (IPL) group Punjab Kings’ training and practise session. PBKS played their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Monday and the KL Rahul-driven team is getting a charge out of a brief break from their stuffed IPL plan. Punjab will next take on Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Friday.
Punjab Kings tweeted the following: “Be it football or cricket, #UniverseBoss certainly knows how to apply finishing touches.”
Gayle gave his marker the slip and provided a first-time finish, following which he was seen celebrating the goal with his teammates.

Chris Gayle has been a constant player in PBKS’ beginning XI this season. Be that as it may, the Universe Boss has just shown looks at what he is equipped for in the current mission. The 41-year-old has overseen 113 runs in 6 games at a normal of 23.80 while his strike rate is at 119.
Punjab have dominated only two matches from their initial six games and are put in the bottom portion of the points table. Punjab began their journey of IPL 2021 on a positive note by overcoming Rajasthan Royals (RR) by four runs in a last-over thrill ride.
The win was followed by a series of defeats where they neglected to capitalize on the triumph, as they lost their next three games on account of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Delhi Capitals (DC) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). A resurgent Punjab pounded defending champs Mumbai Indians (MI) by nine wickets.
With Chris Gayle yet to top this season and world No.1 T20I batsman Dawid Malan standing ready, there have been mumbles of the Englishman supplanting the 41-year-old in PBKS’ playing XI.
