Morris to Gayle, 1 wide, short, wide, extra bounce. Gayle tries to upper-cut it, but doesn't reach it. Called wide


Morris to Gayle, SIX, mis-hit for six. Gayle throws his arms at a length ball outside off, and sends this off the outside half of the toe end over point. Lands on the rope on the full


Morris to Gayle, 1 leg bye, bouncer, shoulder high, into the body, Gayle is late into the hook. Will take a leg-bye off the helmet

Royal Challengers Bangalore 16/0   CH Gayle 8* (5b 1x6)

Holder to Gayle, no run, bouncer, chest high, Gayle gets a bottom edge on the bat. Goes to Dhoni on the bounce

Holder to Gayle, SIX, flicked away for six. On a length, on the pads, and he has nonchalantly sent this over deep midwicket. Almost into the second tier. Crowd going crazy


Holder to Gayle, SIX, make it three. Jamaican laying into the Bajan. Attempted bouncer but not much sting behind it, and Gayle has deposited this in the same general area as the previous two

Royal Challengers Bangalore 66/0   CH Gayle 28* (12b 4x6)

Bravo to Gayle, OUT, Hussey doesn't drop. This was short of a length and wide, and Gayle smashed this in front of square. It's going at the rate of knots, but Hussey is good enough at extra cover

Royal Challengers Bangalore 67/1   CH Gayle 28 (13b 4x6)
