Tallawahs have done in style. Chasing 119 was never a tough task for Gayle and co. Early on, after a decent start to the innings spin duo did a great job and put breaks on scoring. Santokie and Theron ripped through their middle order and thereafter it was Gayle show as he brought up his 50th fifty in T20's. And Christopher Henry Gayle is the Man of the match for his match winning innings. That's it from here, take care, cheers.
