RCB win one!
Result - Royal Challengers Bangalore (206 for 6) beat Somerset (155 for 6) by 51 runs...
Royal Challengers with their backs against the wall after two loses and requiring a win to stay alive in the tournament managed to bring their best performance to the table helping them record their first win.
Gayle Storm - Chris Gayle who was the star for RCB in the IPL, finally came to the party as he scored a brilliant half century helping RCB breach the 200 mark and setting Somerset a very difficult target. He scored 86 of just 46 balls with 4 boundaries and 8 sixes. All of a typical Gayle innings characteristic was seen as he launched into the Somerset left arm spinners sending them all over the ropes. It will be interesting to see if he can keep it up for RCB's next match.
Raining sixes - In a format like T20 where sixes are considered their weight in gold, but it does get a little monotonous when it starts raining sixes or gold for that matter. People won't complain but it starts losing the flavor. Maybe not, but in a match where 20 shots went over the boundary, you can understand just how frequent it was. That means every 2 overs there was a six and after a moment it got monotonous. But I'm not complaining as the high scoring match not only provided RCB their first win but managed to keep them alive.
I'm sure with this win, RCB would have regained their form and am hoping for another win tomorrow to see the team through. Go RCB!
