So Warriors failed to match Gayle's score, let alone the target. Very one-sided game. The talk will be all about Gayle for days to come. RCB now go on the road for six away games. Their home record is intact.

Looks like they aren't showing the presentation as they have cut the coverage to DD v Kings XI. Punjab have decided to bowl. I will take leave here. Thanks for your company. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Cheers!
