While Chris Gayle gave the impression to be an unaffected character within the goings-on, there isn’t any doubting that he has a variety of steely dedication below that languid physique language to make sure that his franchise goes far in IPL 2021.
The grit was on show on a dodgy pitch in opposition to Mumbai Indians and extra of that will probably be wanted for his facet to make it to the knockouts.
