Commentary

Bangalore won by 8 wkts | Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Kolkata Knight Riders Live Score, 12th Match

Gambhir was booed by the crowd. when he was walking in to talk to the presenter. Hop tabs to follow all the action from Pune vs Rajasthan.
Chris Gayle: 'Overall the team effort was wonderful. Bowlers did well at the death. You can put the boundary wherever you want, I will take the challenge. I love the crowd in Bangalore. They are wonderful and keep me going. The staff has been wonderful as well.'
No suprises. Chris Gayle is the Man of the Match.
Virat Kohli: 'What is done on the field is done. Other than that great game for us. Good vibe in the team right now. You got to ask Chris Gayle what he is feeling on the day. When he is leaving the ball the opposition needs to worry more than when he is hitting them. We can take this confidence forward in the next few games.
Gambhir:'It happens in the heat of the moment. You don't need to carry it off the field. No love lost. I thought 160 was a good total and we were playing 5 bowlers. But all credit to Chris. Hopefully we can turn it around from now. It's pressure when you are batting first, you are always chasing that 160-170. We have got a quality side and hope we can turn it around.'
Gayle: 'He deserves the orange cap. He has been batting well all summer.'
Kohli: 'It's very tough to keep the orange cap off Gayle. I don't think the Bangalore ground is big enough for him. He loves this place and will always hit sixes with ease here.'
Kohli and Gambhir shook hands. No exchange of words or stares. Both sported smiles. Nothing warm about it as well.
Comprehensive win for Bangalore. Once again it was the Gayle storm which did it for them. Kohli dazzled for the short while he was at the crease. But ultimately credit must go to their bowlers for restricting this strong Kolkata batting line-up to just 154 on this batting beauty.
