Happy Birthday KL Rahul! The Mangalore batsman, who just turned 26, seems to have become the toast of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) when he smashed the fastest-ever IPL 50 in just 14 balls. He seems to be in a spectacular form with his new northern franchise. And with Chris Gayle as his teammate, he seems to be in a very comfortable space.
But Gayle doesn’t just provide entertainment on the pitch — from performing a version of bhangra to the incredible B-Day celebrations, it seems KXIP have stolen the ‘partyholic’ tag from RCB. Take a look at what happened at KL Rahul’s birthday. The celebrations took place inside the KXIP dressing room. Chris Gayle presented himself as Rahul’s cake, surrounded by fruits all around. It seems to be the most innovative cake ever. In the background, you can see folks laughing away to glory at Gayle’s expense and it is Yuvraj who seems to be cheering the most.
The video was uploaded to an Instagram page called cricket.freak.
KL Rahul appeared to be shy, but he too seemed to have enjoyed the surprise. Gayle, who was in the centre of it all, seems to have enjoyed all the attention he was getting.
Meanwhile, as IPL enters its middle stages, Kolkata Knight Riders, with momentum on their side, travel to Jaipur to take on Rajasthan Royals who have a good history at the Sawai Mann Singh Stadium. The match starts at 8:00 PM IST.
