Chris Gayle has recovered from food poisoning and has already returned to their training camp in preparation for their Thursday match. 

After being hospitalized due to food poisoning, Chris Gayle has posted on his Instagram a picture of himself chilling on the hospital bed. As he had already recovered, the ‘Universe Boss’ has officially returned to training camp to prepare for their upcoming match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

On his Instagram post, Gayle posted a picture with a caption that says, ‘I can tell you this!!! I will never go down without a fight!! I Am The #UniverseBoss - That will never change!! You can learn from me...but it’s not everything I do you should follow!! Don’t forget my style and flare too. Thanks for all your concerns peeps, much appreciated’. 

Supposedly, Gayle was to be featured in the KXIP fixture against the Kolkata Knight Riders. However, due to food poisoning, he had been ruled out of the game. With his return, he will already be seen playing his first IPL 2020 game on Thursday. 

Gayle remains to be a crucial part of the team’s lineup even if he hasn’t played in one game yet. In fact, KXIP batsman Mayank Agarwal says, ‘Gayle is an integral part of KXIP whether playing or mentoring. He has been speaking to all of us, contributing in the batters’ meeting and also sharing stuff which is crucial. I have had great conversations with Gayle. We first played together in RCB and just watching him play and chatting is fantastic’. 

‘Even here he told me don’t have to do anything extraordinary, just keep trusting your skills and execute them. He asks me to go out and enjoy the game. Before the last game, he said you are batting great and just look to get into good batting positions. If you are striking well, make sure you continue scoring runs. These are just a few of the many good things he keeps saying. He is just not helping me, but a lot of the batsmen’, he added. 

Gayle’s first match will be held on the 15th where the odds are -161.29 for the RCB and +120 for KXIP. To see the odds of other upcoming matches, visit Betwala.
