  1. why chris gale not played in ipl matches in 2016

    • please answer me.

    • Hi Chris Gayle played 2 matches in IPL 2016 in which he didn’t scored runs then he missed two – three matches since he was not in India, He went home to meet his family and his new born baby. In the last match against SRH, Virat Kohli not included him in the playing XI as He can only take 4 overseas players in the playing XI and RCB major problem is with the bowling so he took an overseas bowler in place of Chris Gayle. Hope you will see in upcoming matches of IPL 2016
