Chris Gayle’s devastating form will be a cause of immense worry for the inconsistent Kings XI Punjab when they clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore in an IPL match on Friday.
Punjab slumped to their third defeat, first in their own backyard, when Kolkata Knight Riders beat them comprehensively by eight wickets on Wednesday.

RCB, on the other hand, displayed sensational batting in the win over Pune Warriors in their previous match.
