Chris Gayle started slowly. He played out a maiden against Umesh Yadav, was scoreless for eight consecutive balls, and was 1 off nine deliveries. He let Virat Kohli provide the initial propulsion after Tillakaratne Dilshan fell early. Gayle was biding his time. And when that time came, Gayle began to launch an assault that endangered people in the stands, pummelling Delhi Daredevils into submission. By the time the innings ended, with Gayle on 128 off 62 deliveries, he had hit 13 sixes, giving Royal Challengers Bangalore a terrific chance of staying in the competition and boosting their net run-rate.
Royal Challengers needed to win this game to draw level with Chennai Super Kings on points, move ahead of Kings XI Punjab, and pull further away from Rajasthan Royals. Defeat would have been debilitating to their campaign, so Gayle and Kohli chose the perfect situation for a 204-run partnership, the second highest in Twenty20 cricket. The absence of Morne Morkel, who was rested from Daredevils' attack because the hosts had already qualified, was telling. They will now have to chase the season's highest total without the indisposed Virender Sehwag.
