Natasha and Gayle flew back to Jamaica on Monday and also confirmed the news through social media. Gayle will be missing two games of IPL for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), one that was against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Wednesday while the second match is scheduled to be played against Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) on Friday. Gayle has not been in particularly good form of late, dismissed for single digits in his two appearances in the IPL 2016 so far.
Gayle’s captain Virat Kohli however believes that Gayle’s form is not a worry. ‘’I am confident that Gayle can come up with runs when the team needs it’’, he reasoned. Kohli also said, ‘’You can certainly be rest assured that Gayle will come good as the tournament progresses. He would score a century when the team will need it. I am not too worried about Gayle, because the other guys are stepping up nicely. Cricket is all about grabbing the opportunity, if some others fail,” as mentioned on rediff. RCB lost their second consecutive match against MI at Wankhede by 6 wickets, with some spectacular performance by Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Krunal Pandya, along with the finishing touch by Kieron Pollard.
