Chris Gayle was hospitalized on Saturday evening and he confirmed the news by sharing a picture on Instagram. Earlier, Anil Kumble had mentioned that Gayle was supposed to play the KXIP-SRH clash but wasn’t available for selection as he was down with food poisoning.
On Saturday, during the toss, KL Rahul was expected to announce Gayle’s name but he instead said Chris Jordan would be the overseas player coming in, in place of Sheldon Cottrell.
No one had an idea about the fact that Gayle was unwell and hospitalized on Saturday. Even Star Sports commentators ended up having a conversation on why Gayle has not been included in the KXIP’s lineup.
Gayle, who posted a picture of himself in his Instagram post, with slices of cucumber over his eyes, while chewing on a carrot strip, seemed to be in good spirits.
“I can tell you this!!! I will never go down without a fight!! I Am The Universe Boss – That will never change!! You can learn from me…but it’s not everything I do you should follow!! Don’t forget my style and flare too!!
Thanks for all your concerns peeps, much appreciated,” he said.
