KXIP Calls Chris Gayle Superior To Warner & Tweets About His Records, Gets An Epic Reply From SRH

IPL 2020 which was supposed to start on March 29 has been postponed till April 15 due to the coronavirus scare but it seems that the official Twitter handles of IPL teams are in no mood of taking some rest.

Recently, Twitterati witnessed a fun banter between the Twitter handles of IPL teams – Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). It all began when the official Twitter handle of Star Sports compared King XI Punjab’s Chris Gayle and Sunrisers Hyderabad’s David Warner and asked everyone to tell who is more destructive.

Here is what Star Sports tweeted with the photos of David Warner and Chris Gayle,

“Power hitting is a part of @davidwarner31 and @henrygayle’s!

But which one do you think is the more destructive #VIVOIPL opener?

Convince us of your pick below, NOW”

Kings XI Punjab responded by talking about the records made by Chris Gayle and it tweeted, “One of them has the most no. of IPL centuries, the highest-ever score in IPL, a strike rate of over 150, the fastest-ever century in IPL history and the most sixes in the competition to his name. I think we know who our pick is! #SaddaPunjab”

Chris Gayle has scored the most number of hundreds in IPL which is six, his score of 175 which he scored in 2013 is still the highest ever score and he also scored the fastest century for which he played only 30 balls.

Sunrisers Hyderabad was also quick to respond and it talked about the IPL achievements of David Warner. Here is what SRH tweeted with a photo of Warner lifting Gayle up, “3 x Orange Caps 1 x IPL Trophy Need a lift, @lionsdenkxip?”

In the year 2015, 2017 and 2018, Warner won the orange cap which is given to that batsman who has scored the maximum runs in that particular season and he also lifted the trophy in the year 2016. Interestingly, David Warner was the skipper of SRH in 2016 when his team won IPL by defeating Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB) in the final and co-incidentally Chris Gayle was a part of RCB at that time.

On the other hand, Gayle has played for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), RCB and KXIP but he has never been a part of an IPL winning team.

Who do you think is more destructive – David Warner or Chris Gayle?
