In an interview with Inside Sports, Wasim Zafar said, “Our opening pair of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul showed great play last season. After that, Gayle didn’t get a chance at the beginning, but as soon as he got the chance, he also did a great job at number 3. Playing at No. 3, it was completely new for him and the team.
