Commentary

He might not have got proper sleep, but Gayle has woken Bangalore out of their early-season slumber, and has fashioned a five-match winning streak. They are now placed third in the table with a game in hand over the second-placed Kolkata. And for Kochi - with 10 points from 11 games - it is exceedingly to make it to the playoffs. That's all I have for you, but we will bring you the next match too. So just switch to the other tab. Okay bye

Quotes from presentation
Chris Gayle is MoM. He says: "Good game. Enjoyed it. Another victory under the belt. Good all-round performance. Can't complain. Vettori breaking that Klinger-McCullum partnership was excellent. Late night for me. I couldn't sleep well. Went to bed at 6am."

Daniel Vettori: "Great performance. Our fielding was outstanding, most pleasing aspect of our game. To get McCullum out early made a big difference. Normally I get him out with a bad LB, this was probably the first legitimate time I got him out. Complete performance over all."

Mahela Jayawardene: "Our goal was to put a decent score and put pressure on them, but credit to them, they bowled well, fielded well. Small total, and Chris and Dilshan were always going to come hard at us. Disappointed."

Phew. Dilshan says he needs a bulletproof chest-pad when batting with Gayle. And don't forget Bangalore won the game in the field when they pulled Kochi back from 41 for 0 after five overs. Vettori led that effort, and Gayle and Dilshan just provided the exclamation mark. Vettori is my Man of the Match. Let's see what happens at the presentation
