The remainder of IPL 2021 is set to resume in September this year in the UAE — and this will be a good opportunity for the veterans to show that they still have got the goods in them to deliver. The suspension of IPL 2021 in the midway would have already given them time to think about their retirement too.
Approaching the later stages of the career, it is very important that they enjoy the game and not just deal with the pressures of the age factor. Their fitness will be a major issue too, but they will be looking to finish their IPL career with a bang in some days time. Here are the Veterans XI of the first stage of the IPL 2021.
Veterans XI Of The First Stage:
The Universe Boss is almost 42 years old and he still looks like he can have a great impact for the side with his clinical hitting. Gayle was assigned a different role at number three for the Punjab Kings and he managed to score 178 runs in 8 matches.
Gayle is still in the scheme of things for the T20 World Cup for West Indies and his name was recently added to the West Indies T20 international side. The second phase of IPL could be very handy for Gayle and he will have a big role to play if Punjab has to make it to the playoffs.
