The record Breaker- Chris Gayle!
The home match for RCB against Pune Warriors and Gayle was at his very explosive best!
This one match will be remembered by everyone, when Gayle almost broke every record, he is a super human. The 175 runs he made included 17 6’s and 13 4’s, Pune had nothing to do and Gayle was at his very best and more over it was Chris Gayle’s day at M.Chinnaswamy stadium Bengaluru and for the fans who watched the match at the stadium, they could not have asked for a better match.
Pune, earlier had won the toss and decided to bowl and soon there was a Rain when RCB came into bat and RCB openers Gayle and Dilshan had put on 11 runs in 1.2 overs. The play was stopped for less than a hour and Fans had to wait, and the wait provided too costly for the Pune warriors, once the covers were removed and the play resumed, Gayle was in full flow, the rain had stopped and the Gayle storm had just started.
There was no one in the Pune warrior contingent who could stop the super human Chris Gayle and he was on a roll, on the other end Dilshan was calm and watching Gayle going on a rampage. Pune warriors managed a score of 133 chasing RCB’s giant score of 263/5.
