Chris Gayle and Shane Watson, who will be playing together for RCB in the IPL, have decided to “move forward” burying their differences for the sake of the team. Speaking to the media on Sunday, Watson admitted about the “run-ins” the duo had in the past and opened up about their new partnership.
ayle and Watson have had an acrimonious past with the pair crossing swords a few times. The pair first clashed during the Test match between West Indies and Australia at Perth, back in 2009, after Watson gave Gayle an angry send-off. Gayle later said in an interview that, “He (Watson) only looks big and strong but he's soft.”
The swashbuckling batsmen once again came against each other, earlier this year, with Watson speaking out against Chris Gayle’s controversial interview during the Big Bash League. “I know Chris Gayle fairly well so that sort of thing is expected,” Watson said.
But, the duo have patched up their differences after they became team-mates at Royal Challengers Bangalore. Speaking to the media on Sunday at the M Chinnaswamy stadium, Watson admitted that he and Gayle had a few run-ins in the past, but have buried their differences for the sake of the team.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their first match of the season against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the M Chinnaswamy stadium on Tuesday.
