Punjab skipper KL Rahul has come out in support of all-rounder Maxwell, who has been widely criticized this season. Rahul said the team needs to support match winners.
Maxwell is the team man. Batting well on the net. It is important to support Maxwell. It’s nice to see Maxwell spending more time at the crease. KL Rahul hopes that he will be able to do the same in the upcoming matches.
Maxwell has so far scored 90 runs from 10 games this season. Maxwell added 32 runs and one wicket against Delhi Capitals.
The Punjab captain said that his heart rate was increasing with each match. It is gratifying to be able to finish the game in the 19th over. That surprised me. I will not lie. Especially when playing with six batsmen and one all-rounder.
A batsman in the top 4 but the team needs to stay at the crease until they see the target. I batted well. Rahul said he was trying to take this confidence forward. With a 5 wicket win over Delhi, Punjab moved up to the fifth position in the points table.
Earlier, Delhi Captains won the toss and elected to bat. Shikhar Dhawan scored 164 runs in 20 overs. Punjab won by five wickets with six balls to spare. Despite the defeat of the Punjab openers, Gayle, Pooran and Maxwell led Punjab to their fourth win of the tournament.
IPL 2020: De Villiers and Russell, no record for Universe boss, bowlers hit 7 times
It goes without saying that there is no one who can beat Chris Gayle in explosive batting. Statistics often prove it. That’s why fans call him Universe Boss. Gayle has changed the face of Punjab. The team won three matches in a row. Gayle, who scored 29 off 13 balls in the match against Delhi Capitals, really shook the opposition. Gayle beat young Delhi pacer, Tushar Deshpande, by 26 runs in the over. It was this over that put Punjab ahead in the powerplay.
Tushar had bowled well in the previous two matches. All three wickets were taken. But the third match will be something Tushar likes to forget. He conceded 41 runs in two overs. But Gayle has set a new record with this brawl. This is the seventh time in the IPL that Universe Bose has scored more than 25 runs. This is beyond calculation and unthinkable. Deleting the comparison of these figures is another matter. No player has scored more than 25 runs on two occasions.
It is clear that Gayle’s record is unmatched by any other player. These figures illustrate Gayle’s dominance in power hitting. Therefore, at this age, any bowler in the world should be afraid of Gayle. Jose Butler, Shane Watson, Kieron Pollard, and Rohit Sharma have scored more than 25 runs in their IPL careers so far. They are the only ones who have been beaten twice. Mr. 360 AB de Villiers and Andre Russell have scored more than 25 runs only once. They are the only ones capable of breaking Gail’s record.
At the same time, it’s a big surprise for Gayle. In 2011, Gayle scored 37 runs in an over against Kochi Tuskers. This achievement was in the over of Prashant Parameswaran. This achievement included Wide. Gayle was playing for Bangalore that day. Gayle’s shot also helped Punjab win the match against Delhi. The score went up quickly and helped the later batsmen well. In the match, Delhi scored 164 runs with Shikhar Dhawan scoring a century. Punjab won the toss and elected to bat.
