Chris Gayle has not played a single game for the KL Rahul-led side and coach Anil Kumblerevealed last week that the explosive West Indies batsman missed out on being part of the XI after being down with an upset stomach.
The 41-year-old self-styled ‘Universe Boss’, who holds the record for the most sixes — 326 — in the Indian Premier League, said he won’t “go down without a fight”.
“I can tell you this!!! I will never go down without a fight!!,” Chris Gayle wrote on Instagram with a picture of him lying in a hospital bed in Dubai on Saturday.
“I Am The #Universe Boss – That will never changed!! You can learn from me…but its not everything I do you should follow!! Don’t forget my style and flare too!! #LivingDiLife #Always Thanks for all your concerns peeps, much appreciated (I really was on a phone call).”
