Gayle is fit to play against CSK

Flamboyant West Indies opener Chris Gayle has achieved his fitness after recovering from a back injury which kept him away from the last game against Delhi Capitals, said Kings XI Punjab batsman Mayank Agarwal Saturday. Gayle, who has been in good form, had missed Kings XI's last match against Delhi Capitals but it didn't affect their game as his replacement Sam Curran claimed four wickets, which included a hat-trick, to help the team register a 14-run win. 'I can't tell you whether he (Chris Gayle) is playing or not (laughs), but he is fit,' Agarwal told reporters on the eve of Saturday's match against Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram stadium here.

Three-time champions CSK are coming into the match after suffering a 37-run loss against Mumbai Indians but Agarwal said the hosts are an experienced side and simply ruthless at home. 'It (CSK) is a quality outfit and it knows the ground well. It is an experienced side and it is quite ruthless when it comes to Chepauk or elsewhere,' he said.
