Punjab Kings, rather surprisingly, dropped “Universe Boss” Chris Gayle from their playing XI for their first game of IPL 2021 second leg against the Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday. The KL Rahul led side named Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Fabien Allen and Adil Rashid as their four overseas players.

Chris Gayle hasn’t been in the best of forms of late, having aggregated just 165 runs at 18.33 for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League. However, the dynamic left-hander has been a proven match-winner for the West Indies and various global T20 leagues, most significantly at the IPL.

Therefore, it was quite a surprise when the "Universe Boss" was overlooked by the Punjab Kings on Wednesday. Gayle, who celebrates his 42nd birthday on Wednesday, had scored 178 runs at 25.43 while maintaining a strike rate of 133.83. Whether he’ll be a major miss for the 2014 runners-up against RR, remains to be seen.

SO SAD 

CRUEL AND UNUSUAL 

LOL

MEMES KEEP COMING 

YES, IT IS! 

WHY PUNJAB KINGS?

YAYY OR NAYY?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
