KL Rahul is one of the most important players in the Kings XI Punjab side. Earlier, he represented Royal Challengers Bangalore where he brushed shoulders with players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Chris Gayle. The Jamaican batsman, Chris Gayle is also playing for Kings XI Punjab since the last season like KL Rahul.
The Karnataka batsman, Rahul described Gayle as the naughtiest and most mischievous player. “Chris Gayle is the best T20 batsman the game has ever had. But he is always up to a mischief and tries to pull my legs. He does not seem like a senior player in the dressing room but in fact he is the naughtiest and most mischievous player in a dressing room,” Rahul said ahead of their Indian T20 League match against Rajasthan.
“I have played with Gayle for quite a while, we had an opportunity to bat together for a few years in RCB and he considered me as a 21 year boy. I have learnt a lot from him. I love his company,” he added.
