They were able to win that match by a huge margin of 9 wickets. In his second match, he did not last for long, as he went out for 19 runs in the balls he played.
But his team are not with his knock in the second match as they believe, his presence in the team is a big boost for the entire team, even if he do not score much with the bat. His Chittagong Vikings teammate Jahurul Islam said, “We still feel relax if Chris Gayle does not score also. It is a great thing to play alongside him and share the dressing room as well. When he comes to bat it boosts the confidence of the entire team. It is a big advantage if a player like him is on your team.”
Chittagong Vikings will play their next match tomorrow against the table toppers Dhaka Dynamites in Mirpur. This will also be the third match of Chris Gayle in season four of Bangladesh Premier League- BPL
