Gayle set for IPL 2020 debut as KXIP face RCB in must-win game

Chris Gayle of Kings XI Punjab will be hoping thatfires on his much-awaited return and they, for once, put up a complete performance in their must-win game against a high-flyinghere on Thursday.The inability to produce an all-round show and close out games they should have won has led to KXIP losing six out of their seven matches.

But KXIP can take confidence from the fact their only win in the tournament has come against RCB, who look a much more potent squad since their last meeting on September 24.Though the Sharjah wicket has been slowing gradually, the smaller ground dimensions are ideal for someone like Gayle to go on a six-hitting spree.However, it certainly won’t be easy for the 41-year-old to get going from ball one, having not played earlier in the competition.
