They both are highly destructive and on their day can take bowling apart. in Indian Premier League they have been making mockery of bowlers with their power hitting for years now. We are talking about Chris Gayle and David Warner who we think both are equally good in the area. However Kings Xi Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad don’t agree and were involved in a banter on their Twitter handles over the issue.
The story started after Star Sports tweeted a photo collage of Australia’s David Warner and West Indies’ Chris Gayle with a simple question – “Power hitting is a part of @davidwarner31 and @henrygayle.
But which one do you think is the more destructive opener.”
While Gayle plays for Kings XI Punjab and David Warner plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. In response to the tweet, KXIP immediately picked Gayle as the answer to the question.
“One of them has the most no. of IPL centuries, the highest-ever score in IPL, a strike rate of over 150, the fastest-ever century in IPL history and the most sixes in the competition to his name. I think we know who our pick is,” KXIP wrote.
SRH was quick to pose a counter-argument to KXIP’s tweet. “3 x Orange Caps 1 x IPL Trophy Need a lift @lionsdenkxip?,” the franchise tweeted.
