Commentary

Chennai play Rajasthan and Delhi play Pune tomorrow. That is all from me, till tomorrow, this is Suneer Chowdhary signing off.

Presentation Gayle has got a medal for the most sixes this game, this time he will not be sharing it with anyone he's hit!

Vettori: Good win, very good chase by AB and Chris, they were quite confident in their chase. Power of Chris to turn the game around in a couple of overs. Helps to win two in a row and gets the confidence up, hope to peak at the right time, want to get 8 or 9 wins to get to the playoffs.

Hussey: We were 10 runs light, the bowlers did a good job I thought, lot of positives to come, Mahmood came back well, Awana bowled well, Chawla did a good job too.

Gayle, man of the match: Ball came on to the bat, wanted to keep my cool, AB came on and played wonderfully, good win and looking to Rajasthan next. Yes, there should be some protection for the umpires and the fans in the stadium, you don't want a loose ball hitting you. Thank god no-one got hit today.

A fairly comprehensive win for the Royal Challengers Bangalore then, by five wickets. One thought that the score of 163 was a decent one but with Gayle deciding to 'drop anchor' and play till the end, Punjab were never in the game with this one. Awana bowled well for his four wickets, but the 131-run stand for the fourth wicket snatched the game away from the home side. Gayle scored 87, de Villiers made 52 and incidentally, these two were the only batsmen from Bangalore to get into double figures.
