Gayle Storm takes RCB into the Finals

<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">

Mumbai and the world witnessed yet another IPL&nbsp;phenomenal&nbsp;that the crowd have come to call the 'Gayle Storm'. &nbsp;In a slow wicket with plenty of cracks a hapless Mumbai team fell to Gayle's big hitting and was knocked out [<a href="http://www.espncricinfo.com/indian-premier-league-2011/engine/current/match/501270.html">SCORECARD</a>]. &nbsp;Now RCB meets CSK in the finals today.

Sachin having won the toss put the Challengers in to bat, and things went&nbsp;horribly&nbsp;wrong for him as the very first over went for 27 runs! &nbsp;Chris Gayle and Agarwal played some stunning shots and gave the Mumbai bowling no respite. &nbsp;They added 113 runs for the first wicket before Agarwal departed. &nbsp;Gayle continued his slog-fest but he fell soon after trying to clear the ropes for a well made 89 of just 47 balls. &nbsp;From then on the Challengers struggled to get the runs but they managed a very&nbsp;competitive&nbsp;score of 185 for 4.

Mumbai started the run-chase in grand fashion with a four of the very first ball, but soon wicket-taker - Aravind struck to remove Blizzard. &nbsp;Harbhajan was promoted yet again and after a few lusty blows, he too fell. &nbsp;With the chances of winning solely on Sachin's shoulder, he played some stunning shots but was stumped beautifully off Syed Mohamud. &nbsp;Mumbai then&nbsp;slumped&nbsp;as they lost quick wickets and eventually ended up 42 runs short.

So for the second time, RCB are into the finals and let's hope that this year they do one better.
