The 37-run over
The third over of Bangalore's innings, bowled by Prasanth Parameswaran, cost 37 runs. Here's how Chris Gayle did it
2.1 SIX, Sorry, it's Gayle who is into the attack, makes room, gets under a length ball, opens the face, and clears point easily.
2.2 (no ball) SIX, this is ridiculous. Demolition. Slower ball, in his swinging arc, and he lofts it over point again. What's more? It's a no-ball.
2.2 FOUR, Short ball, at this gentle pace, murdered past midwicket.
2.3 FOUR, Mahela said at the toss he had plans for Gayle. Right. The plan seems to have four to five men on the off-side circle and bowl back of a length. PP does just does that, and he punches it between extra cover and cover.
2.4 SIX, Carnage. Gayle makes room, wallops a length ball over cover. He has taken this Go Green campaign seriously, and will finish this before flood lights can come on
2.5 SIX, Where do you hide when Dilshan and Gayle are going like this? He is toying around with them. Comes down the track and goes straight this time. 91 metres. Over the sight screen.
2.6 FOUR, inside edge, but that too goes wide of the keeper for four. This is robbery in day light. Bangalore are demolishing Kochi. In case you didn't notice, 37 runs came off this over.
