Known as ‘Universe Boss’, West Indian explosive batsman Chris Gayle believes that KL Rahul has the capability to match the achievements of Indian captain Virat Kohli if he is in ‘his realm’.
Rahul has probably come out from the toughest phase of his life, including poor performance in Test matches in Australia and then in the television program, including the team’s mate Hardik Pandya, the suspension of the BCCI after his misogynist comments.
Rahul left behind these things and made one of the most dangerous opening pairs of the current season with Gayle for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League.
Gayle told PTI, “When you talk about Indian batsmen, KL (Rahul) is one of the players who come to my mind, I would expect him to be a fantastic player like Virat Kohli. After Virat, he should take the responsibility of the team. ‘
Gayle, however, advised Rahul not to take undue pressure. He said, ‘It is necessary for them to take undue pressure, they should rely on themselves and avoid competition from anyone.’
Gayle, 39, ready to play in his fifth World Cup, said, “In India, you do not lack talent and most players do not even get the chance to play.” Gayle, who has been in excellent form in the IPL, has scored 444 runs in 10 matches of the season.
This Jamaican player was bought by Punjab team at the base price last year. Although he proved the franchisees who did not bid for themselves at the auction of the players.
Gayle said, “Kings XI Punjab has been fantastic for two years. I like the way of Punjab. I am working with spectacular people and hopefully, I will do something special for the franchise, our goal is to make the place in the playoff and then move on to it. “
