Christopher Henry Gayle notched up his 21st ton in T20 career.

Kings XI Punjab got the monkey off their back by defeating the Sunrisers Hyderabad at their fortress this season in Mohali.

The Lions of Kings XI managed to win over the undefeated team in the tournament, SRH, with a handy 15-run margin.

Chris Gayle set it initially for the hosts who played their final game at Mohali this season. The Universe Boss treated his fans in Punjab by registering his sixth ton in IPL career.

The 104 which came off just 63 deliveries consisted of a mind-boggling 11 sixes. Gayle now has a mammoth tally of 21 tons in T20 cricket, to state that he truly is a giant in this form of the game.

I’ m always determined. I always give it my all for whatever franchise I represent. I’m a 100 percent. Like I said, it’s a new franchise. A lot of people might say that Chris has a lot to prove – he didn’t get selected or picked early in the auction,” Chris Gayle said during the post-match presentation.

Going to miss the wicket at Mohali: Gayle

“I think Virender Sehwag has saved IPL by picking me. This is a brilliant start. Viru said in an interview that if Chris Gayle can win us two games, we have got our money’s worth. I’d like to have another word with Viru and see what happens from thereon,” continued the universe boss.

Gayle, now, is looking at playing against the Kolkata Knight Riders at Kolkata. Having played many years in the country, Gayle stated he exactly knows how conditions in India is like.

Overall, happy with the win and now (time to) move on to Kolkata. It all depends on the mood and conditions is also tricky as well. Playing so many years in India, I know what the conditions are like. I am glad to get a hundred today. Going to miss this wicket. I’m not here to prove it to anyone. I’ve done it all. Been there, done that,” concluded Chris Gayle.
