As majority of the sporting world practice self isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, plenty of cricketers are taking out time to engage with one another as well as their fans on social media. One certain individual who has been the busiest among the lot on instagram and twitter is Kevin Pietersen. The former England batsman has had conversations with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and recently Gautam Gambhir.
Since it was supposed to be the IPL season this time around, both KP and Gautam Gambhir came across a topic in which they talked about the best ever batsmen in the history of the high-profile tournament.
Pietersen felt that it’s Chris Gayle who has been force to be reckoned with in the IPL, whereas, Gautam Gambhir backed Australian international David Warner as the finest player in the history of the IPL.
According to Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle is the perfect ambassador of T20 cricket and is a sheer entertainer through his unique six hitting abilities. However, the former cricketer turned politician Gautam Gambhir backed David Warner because of his consistency with the bat and also because he has led the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to an IPL title in 2016.
Gayle has lifted the IPL for a number of years. He bats at the top of the order and has brought so much sexiness to the IPL and he has been very smart in the way he has approached his batting,
He has seen off some of the good bowlers and against the one he thinks he can hit from Bangalore to Mumbai, he sends them all the way. He creates so much excitement and he has aura around him when you see him,
Thoug KP picked Chris Gayle as the best among the best, Gambhir felt that the likes of Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina could have also made the list.
I’m really surprised you don’t have Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina in the list. Out of these four, David Warner straightaway because the rest three guys haven’t won a single tournament till now but warner single-handedly won it for SRH said Gambhir.
