Chawla to Gayle, no run, careful back foot defence from Gayle, never a dull moment you know


Chawla to Gayle, FOUR, now there;'s a drop as well, it's all hapening, Gayle slogs it over square leg, fielder had his eyes on the ball as it came down from stratosphere, got both hands to it, it popped out, made another attempt, it popped out again, and for good measure, rolled in to the boundary

Piyush gets another one, too full and close for the cut, but Virat went for it, the ball hurried on, and clattered in to the stumps, Virat went flat down on his back on the ground as if to ram home the point that the ball kept low, the lad gets an A for theatrics, Piyush points towards the dressing room for effect
