IPL 2021: Punjab Kings (PBKS) explosive batter Chris Gayle recently shared a picture with a car. He captioned the picture as “Imma pull up baby…” which piqued Sunrisers Hyderabad batter David Warner’s interest. The Australian responded to the post: “Looks like my type of car”. Both the batters were part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 before the league was postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The duo went to the Maldives after the IPL, where they were quarantined. After this, Warner along with other members of the Australian IPL contingent landed in Australia on Monday.

However, while their social media game continues to be up to mark, the duo did not have memorable outings for their respective IPL franchises.
While Warner managed 193 runs from six matches at a low strike-rate of 110.28 before losing his SunRisers Hyderabad captaincy and his place in the XI, Gayle wasn’t at his explosive best with 178 runs from eight matches with no half-centuries despite batting in the top three.
Gayle has been named in the West Indies T20I squad for the three-match series and Warner has found place in both the T20I and ODI teams.
Australia are scheduled to play five T20Is and three ODIs against the West Indies in June-July.
