Dashing left-handed batsman Chris Gayle posted his picture from a hospital bed after his team Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) lost their IPL 2020 match narrowly to Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.

The Jamaican is yet to play a game in this edition even as KXIP have failed to secure victories. The Punjab franchise is lying at the bottom of the points table with just one win from seven matches.

"I can tell you this!!! I will never go down without a fight!! I Am The #UniverseBoss That will never change!! You can learn from me but its not everything I do you should follow!! Don't forget my style and flare too!! #LivingDiLife #Always Thanks for all your concerns peeps, much appreciated (I really was on a phone call)," Gayle posted on instagram.

Gayle had missed the October 8 game against Sunrisers Hyderabad due to upset stomach, coach Anil Kumble had earlier revealed. "Chris Gayle was going to play today's match but he is sick. He is down with food poisoning that's why he isn't in the playing eleven," Kumble had said in an interview on TV.
