The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League [IPL] is in full swing, with almost every team having played at least five games thus far.
But, there are still quite a few prominent names, who due to the surplus options for a particular spot or because of the team combination, have still not featured in the 13th season of the lucrative league.
Here’s a look at the best xi of players warming bench thus far in IPL 2020:
Imagine an IPL season without the ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle. Unfortunately, this has been the case in the ongoing season as Gayle finds himself warming the bench even as KXIP continues to suffer due to the lackluster form of Glenn Maxwell.
And, the fact that KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been brilliant form at the top of the order hasn’t helped Gayle’s cause thus far. Nevertheless, Anil Kumble revealed in an interview during KXIP’s last fixture against SRH that Gayle was slated to play before he was eventually ruled out due to food poisoning
We should see Gayle playing his opening game of the 2020 IPL in Punjab’s next fixture against KKR.
