Commentary

The Huddle - have you been to one yet? - is set to begin. Join in

That does it for another Gayle storm. Hop over to Pune v Rajasthan now.

Gayle is Man of the Match, well of course. Gayle: "You can put the boundary wherever you want, I'll take on the challenge. I'm hungry, I need some food [what his Twitter feed will say tonight]."

Kohli: "Its done, what is done on the field is done [his spat with Gambhir]. Great game for us. When you know Gayle is leaving the ball, the opposition has to be more worried than when he is hitting it."

Gambhir: "It happens in the heat of the moment. We dont need to carry it off the field. It is a tough sport, no love lost. All credit to Chris, he took the game away from us. We were in the same position last year as well. Hopefully we can turn it around. You have to get 160-170 here when you bat first. It is not like Kolkata or other venues where 140 is fine."

Another team Gayled today. Nuff said.

Kohli gets the orange cap for being the leading run-getter this season for now

stogy: "Yes, Ankit. I can imagine Gayle also using the strategic time out to maximum effect, telling AB, "Yes, I am planning to continue hitting the ball really hard" and AB answering "ermm yes erm erm... good idea. Great strategy""

Jayesh: "RCB should change their team name to GCB = Gayle Challengers Bangalore! :)"

Kumar Saurabh: "Well..its a dangerous bell ringing for other teams. He just hits it so effortlessly...god."

Somesh: "Believe me , teams are making 15-20 less runs -- just to prevent a century from Gayle. Call it strategy!"

Balaji to Gayle, SIX runs, short, Gayle swivels and pulls, again it appears he hasn;t timed it, but try telling the man at deep square leg that, he had no chance as it sailed over

Balaji to Gayle, no run, slow length ball, tries to steer it to third man, misses

Ankit Bhutoria: "Why take a strategic time out now, as no amount of strategy can bring KKR back into this game?"
