- Chris Gayle is an IPL legend.
- The West Indies batsman has scored 4965 runs in 142 IPL matches.
- He chose the 29-year-old Indian pacer as the toughest bowler he has faced in the IPL.
During his time at the IPL, Gale has beaten almost every top bowler in the world inside the park. But now he has revealed the name of the bowler who bothered him the most during his IPL days. And to everyone’s surprise, the left-handed batter who scored his 4965 runs in the IPL named a bowler who had never dismissed him as the hardest bowler he had faced.
“Definitely Bumrah. I wouldn’t pick an off spinner like Bhaji or Ashwin, but it’s definitely Bumrah. I can’t seem to get him. His slowball is hard to play.” “His variation is very unique. ‘Choose Bumrah,'” he said when asked to name the toughest bowler to face former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Stylis. .
Bumra, who has been on hiatus recently, made his IPL debut much later than Gale, but the two have met 10 times in the IPL. In those 10 games, Bumra has been unable to get Gale out. The 29-year-old Indian pacemaker has conceded only 37 runs in 48 balls against a West Indies great who has won his cap twice in the IPL.
