That's all we have for you. I am sure you would have enjoyed Gayle's knock. Do join us for the double header tomorrow. Till then, goodbye and goodnight. Adios!
Chris Gayle: I am building a new room for all the prizes I win. It was a good game. Happy to win. Crunch time for us. No time for slip-ups. Myself and Dilshan gave a good start, Virat came in and finished it at the end. The new ball moved about. It played out good for us that Malinga bowled three at the start. It was a good wicket to bat on. I have some very good bats. I have not gone to the gym in sometime now.
Chris Gayle is the Man of the Match
Harbhajan: We are not too disappointed. We have to play 4 more games. Bangalore played better than us. They utilized the conditions better than us. If we had taken Gayle's catch, it would have been different. We were 15 runs short. We are a way better side than what we have showed today. Whatever has happened, we can't do much about it. We are too good a side to be losing like this. If we had scored 20 more runs, things would have been different.
Kohli: It was a big game for us. Mumbai are difficult to beat at home. This will give us the right momentum. I wasn't feeling too great when I was batting in the previous game. My teammates told that I would hit form. The bowlers are hitting the right form at the right stage of the tournament.
Dilshan: All three departments did really well. We took the early wickets. Murali is a great bowler. Sri Lanka is struggling after his retirement. I am still enjoying playing with him. Malinga was the main bowler, he has taken early wickets in every game. We did not want to give any wickets to Malinga. When you are batting with Gayle, it's much easier. When he starts hitting, I try to give him the strike. Enjoy batting with him
After a good bowling performance, Bangalore looked a bit vulnerable at the start. Malinga was making the ball speak and RP Singh too gave him good support. Dwayne Smith dropped a catch when Gayle was 21 and that proved to be the turning point. After smashing three sixes off Ojha, he simply wrested the game from Mumbai's hands. Kohli and Dilshan gave him good support. A 9 wicket win with two overs to spare is a big win and this will definetely boost the confidence of the Bangalore team. As far as Mumbai is concerned, nothing much they could do. They were completely outplayed.
Handshakes all around. Gayle has single handedly won the game for Bangalore. With this win, Bangalore move to the fourth position and I daresay, looking firm favorites to finish in the top 2.
