Chris Gayle: I told Kieron Pollard I’ll punch him in the head
When Mumbai’s Kieron Pollard and bangalore’s Mitchell Starc were involved in an ugly spat at the Wankhede stadium on sunday, Pollard’s West indian Teammate and Bangalore team’s opener Chris Gayle did his bit to calm him down
“I told Kieron that I will punch him in the head,” Gayle told mid-day on the sidelines of the Adidas FIFA flagbearers program at Priyadarshini Park yesterday. “It was just one of those moments that happen during an intense game,” added the 34-year-old.
“Seven games, lost four and won three. We just need to gain momentum by getting some back-to-back wins and that can change the entire face of RCB.”
“Then we can look to push for the final four and then go from strength to strength,” he explained. Gayle, however, admitted that he has not been at his best due to a hamstring injury but hopes to recover soon.
When asked whether he felt AB de Villiers is stealing the thunder that is reserved for the swashbuckling left-hander, Gayle replied with a smile: “I do not feel threatened by AB’s performances.”
“In fact I really admire him, as he is one of the best players of fast bowling in the world. When he is on song, it’s a treat to watch him. It’s a pleasure to be playing alongside him. What a player!“
