Kings XI Punjab has played competitive cricket so far in IPL 2020. However, they have still lost four out of the five matches so far in IPL 2020. Now, they will face the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their next match.
There have been a lot of speculations and debate on when will KXIP include the universal boss Chris Gayle into their playing XI. Now, KXIP batting coach Wasim Jaffer has revealed that they will soon include Chris Gayle and Mujeeb Zadran in their Playing XI.
Wasim stated that they do not want to include both of them into the playing XI at a stage when it requires them to win all the matches to qualify for the playoffs. Death bowling has been the biggest flaw for the Kings XI Punjab side.

Jaffer feels that KXIP has not had a successful outing so far in the tournament. However, it only takes a game or two to turn on the momentum. They need to add match-winners in the team to turn around the situation. He referred to Chris Gayle as the match-winner. Both Gayle and Mujeeb have still not played in IPL 2020.
“It should happen soon. As I said, it needs to happen sooner than later. We don’t want to bring them when every game is a must-win game. Hopefully, we will have those guys featuring soon. Chris looks very much ready and is keen to get on to the park, he has been training really well and has looked really good in the nets,” said Jaffer as quoted by InsideSport.
IPL 2020: Wasim Jaffer calls Chris Gayle an impact player.
Jaffer stated that Gayle is in a terrific run of form and is just waiting for his opportunity in IPL 2020. He is an impact player and everyone around the world is aware of his potentials.
“He is such an impact player, we all know what he can do. I hope he turns up and turns it on the straightaway and changes the tide for all of us. He looks hungry, and that is a very good sign for the franchise. I am hoping he plays quickly. We need match-winners, as many as possible. Not just for the next game, also for the rest of the tournament as he can easily win you four-five games on his own,” concluded Jaffer.
