Kings XI Punjab celebrates Rahul's Birthday in style
Chris Gayle had presented an epic cake to celebrate KL Rahul’s birthday on Wednesday (April 18). The 26-year old Bengaluru-based cricketer had celebrated his birthday with his teammates of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).
Instead of a cake, Chris Gayle puts his face in its place. The big Jamaican ducked under the table and put his head in the position of cake when KL Rahul was invited to cut his birthday cake.
Yuvraj Singh shot the entire video, while Rahul seemingly enjoyed the incident. This is definitely the best cricket video of the day.
Here is the moment that caught our attention:
Rahul and Gayle Important For Punjab
The team got an entirely new-look as their retained few players from last season. However, Gayle might be the steal of the season, this year.
The southpaw proved why he is arguably the best hitter of a cricket ball. His incredible innings against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Tuesday will leave team management in selection conundrum.
On the other hand, Rahul looks to be the promising player in the league so far. The youngster looked in fine touch during the first three games.
The right-handed batsman Rahul also scored the fastest fifty in IPL history against Delhi Daredevils after facing just 14 deliveries.
KL Rahul also made good contributions in the games against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings.
The promising prospect will be their go-to man while setting eye on the playoffs this season.
Moreover, the middle-order looks to be a cause of concern for the team. Karun Nair is the only player who contributed in particular.
Yuvraj Singh is still finding his lost touch while Aaron Finch looked horrible in his two outings.
