However, Virat Kohli is not worried about Gayle. He said, “I am sure he will come good at some stage of the tournament. Probably, he may get a hundred for us when it’s required the most. I am not too worried about Gayle because the other guys are stepping up nicely. Cricket is all about grabbing the opportunity if some others fail. Chris takes a lot of pride playing for RCB. He has been a standout player for us. I think people just expect a lot out of him every T20 match he plays because he is good at it and has scored 17 centuries, which is not a joke. So, expectations are high and Gayle wants to live up to them.”
