Kings XI Punjab cricketer Chris Gayle tried his hands on wicket-keeping gloves in a game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). KL Rahul, the KXIP wicket-keeper had taken a short break as Gayle got himself behind the wickets.
While Rahul was running from the boundary to the wicketkeeper’s position, Gayle was asking the bowler Barinder Sran to go ahead and bowl. Gayle gave the gloves back to Rahul and shared a laugh with his opening partner before going back to his fielding position.
