Ever wanted to know what it would be like in the eye of a hurricane named Gayle?  Just ask Adam Gilchrist and his Punjab team about yesterday's match and they will tell you all about it.  RCB coasted to a sweet 85 runs victory at home [SCORECARD]. 


 



 


 


 



 


 



 




 


 


RCB started off slowly on a pitch which offered the pace men some assistance, but then Gayle started to cut lose.  He showed little respite and looked intent on depositing every single ball over the fence.  One of his hits of Praveen Kumar traveled for 109 meters.  Gayle was completely in his zone and showed no mercy as he took apart the Punjab bowling attack.  He was ably supported by Kohli and together they added 111 runs in no time. Chawla did strike twice in one over to remove both Gayle and Kohli, but A.B. de Villiers continued Gayle's assault and took the score over 200.


 


 



 




 


 



 


 


 



 


Punjab in reply started off badly, losing their skipper early.  And things got worse as they lost the promoted Nayar in the very next over.  With Valthaty falling with the score at 28, the writing was on the wall and Gayle had a mark under the wickets column.  Then hell broke lose as the Punjab batsmen surrendered meekly gifting Gayle 3 wickets and Aravind 4.  They finally achieved 120 for 9 and with it endured a devastating defeat.


 


 



 




 


 



 


 


 



 


Gayle with his 107 of just 49 balls and his 3 wickets was made the man of the match and Bangalore was more than grateful to watch the Gayle show which consisted of some belligerent hits, magic off-breaks and some very inspired dancing.
