Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) started very cautiously against Mumbai Indians (MI) in Match 16 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015. They are 16 for zero after four overs.

Gayle was very cautious and also played out a maiden to Lasith Malinga. That also prompted Kieron Pollard to have a few word with him. The umpire was quick to address that.Pollard did not like that and he went one step further and came out with a tape on his mouth. Pollard has has a history of sledging and today he came up with his own way of shutting himself up.

 

Gayle gave Mumbai Indians an early chance but Lendl Simons at covers dropped a sitter off Mitchell McClenaghan, who was making his IPL debut for Mumbai Indians. LIVE UPDATES: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians
