R Ashwin might have failed to Delhi Capital against Kings XI Punjab on Tuesday, but he did manage to send Chris Gayle back to pavilion at the Dubai International Stadium. Getting the Universe Boss’ wicket is no piece of cake, however, the spinner has revealed the best way to do it. On Wednesday he took to Instagram to share a picture of himself with Gayle, in which he is tying the latter’s shoelaces.
In a witty way, he wrote, “The devil is always in the detail. “Tie both his feet together, before bowling to him”. @chrisgayle333 you trusted me with it and I am sorry for letting you down. Tough day for us @DelhiCapitals but, we will bounce back stronger”.
KXIP defeated DC by five wickets chasing a total of 165 runs. Although in-form KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal could not do much with the bat, Nicholas Pooran’s 53-off 28 balls inspired Kings XI’s win. Gayle scored crucial 29 runs in 13 balls before getting bowled to Ashwin’s delivery.
Punjab will face Sunrisers Hyderabad next on Thursday at Dubai International Cricket stadium.
