  Commentary

    Gayle fireworks lead RCB to much needed win

    McCullum Kishan make a good fist of 200 plus chase but Gujarat eventually fall 21 runs short

  • Chris Gayle (MoM): Good to be back among the runs and that too on special occasion. It's always good to entertain the fans and that's what I do best. To score 10, 000 runs in T20 is special and even after lot of people questioning my game, I knew I could bounce back. Even Shaun Pollock sent me pictures of my stance and everyone were talking about Chris Gayle, but then it's a good feeling to be back in the runs and we got to prepare well for the next game against Kolkata Knight Riders.

  • Virat Kohli, RCB Captain: Lot of straping on the shoulder. It's fit and fine and good to get those two points. When I got hurt, people thought it was just a run, but that's how I always play. Gayle came in for AB and he took the aggressive route, that helps me set in. We were 30 runs above par and that helps, Negi was outstanding and was brave pitching the ball in the right areas, lot of credit goes to him. The plus with Chahal is that he's not scared, even if he gets hit, yet picks wickets. That makes him valuable. If Gayle wants to boss around, he can. Everything in the arc is out of the park. That sort of cricket is incredible.

  • Player of the match - Chris Gayle

  • And that's the game! A much-needed win for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Batted beautifully with Gayle and Kohli setting the tone. Head and Jadhav carried on with the momentum and teed off at the right time. Beating Gujarat by 21 runs, it was game on till Baz went going and maybe a ray of hope after Kishan's breezy 16-ball 39, but it was the flurry of wickets on the middle that cost the Lions dearly. Presentation coming up soon, stay with us.

  • Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli walk out to the middle to open the innings, Dhawal Kulkarni to start the bowling attack.

  • Virat Kohli: It looks a pretty good pitch, pretty consistent and hard, good coverage of grass, both teams are gunning for momentum and it's between two well-contested sides. AB de Villiers and Samuel Badree miss out, Chris Gayle and Travis Head are the only two changes. We need to get some wins under our belt.

  • Suresh Raina: We are a team that likes to bat second. Jason Roy, Munaf Patel and Praveen Kumar sit out. Finchy, Shivil and Dhawal Kulkarni are back. Finchy found his kit bag so he's very happy. We just have to chase well and bowl in right areas.

  • Gujarat Lions Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • A bit on the pitch: "Rajkot is a high-scoring wicket. 180 is a bare minimum," says Ajay Jadeja

  • Today sees two teams places at the last two rungs of the table taking on each other in a bid to see a change of fortunes. Gujarat have fumbled with their spin stocks, while the Royal Challengers have been a tad dismal in all three departments of the game. With AB de Villiers not playing today's match, will it be Gayle who gets another go or will it be Travis Head who can also roll his arm over if needed? Both teams will be looking to walk away from a win considering the fact that they were in the top-four positions but are languishing at the bottom currently.

  Full commentary

    Gayle fireworks lead RCB to much needed win

    McCullum Kishan make a good fist of 200 plus chase but Gujarat eventually fall 21 runs short

  • Chris Gayle (MoM): Good to be back among the runs and that too on special occasion. It's always good to entertain the fans and that's what I do best. To score 10, 000 runs in T20 is special and even after lot of people questioning my game, I knew I could bounce back. Even Shaun Pollock sent me pictures of my stance and everyone were talking about Chris Gayle, but then it's a good feeling to be back in the runs and we got to prepare well for the next game against Kolkata Knight Riders.

  • Virat Kohli, RCB Captain: Lot of straping on the shoulder. It's fit and fine and good to get those two points. When I got hurt, people thought it was just a run, but that's how I always play. Gayle came in for AB and he took the aggressive route, that helps me set in. We were 30 runs above par and that helps, Negi was outstanding and was brave pitching the ball in the right areas, lot of credit goes to him. The plus with Chahal is that he's not scared, even if he gets hit, yet picks wickets. That makes him valuable. If Gayle wants to boss around, he can. Everything in the arc is out of the park. That sort of cricket is incredible.

  • Player of the match - Chris Gayle

  • And that's the game! A much-needed win for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Batted beautifully with Gayle and Kohli setting the tone. Head and Jadhav carried on with the momentum and teed off at the right time. Beating Gujarat by 21 runs, it was game on till Baz went going and maybe a ray of hope after Kishan's breezy 16-ball 39, but it was the flurry of wickets on the middle that cost the Lions dearly. Presentation coming up soon, stay with us.
