Gayle the "bowler" also gets two wickets and beats PWI by 42 runs.

Damn it, missed watching the Gayle Storm!! Now i doubt the channel shows any highlights & if they were to then they would have to show the entire 1st innings!
Tried scrolling through various news channels to see if they are showing short glimpses of his innings but no luck, 1 channel has got Reetinder Singh Sodhi as their in-house expert!

Highlights on Sony Max after the KX1 vs DD match. Better to go to youtube and watch the Gayle blast.

Seconded. Because they have stopped showing all the sixes he hit, because he hit too many!!

The whole innings was highlights, no need for.any glimpses. But seriously someone has to take a look at his bat.

I watch the matches in boxtv.com. Entire matches, match highlights, 4s, 6s - all are available. The drawback of live matches is a delay of about two overs or so.

This is what Gayle did yesterday. My FB and tweeter TL was packed with Gayle. Just too much or is it 6 much ??

BTW, of the 30 ball 100, he managed 96 from boundaries, isnt it ?

They should rather place fielders in the stands. A random thought made five of us book tickets for the RCB v/s PWI match. But that was just a paisa vasool match It was a treat to watch Gayle hit those elegant shots. After that the next innings became so boring we left the stadium with five overs still left.

I have never seen a cricketer as lazy as Gayle. He avoids running between the wickets as much as possible. This is not good for cricket. People will think that cricket is a game for lazy people. So, ban Gayle.

- request from all other IPL franchises :-D

Read on Facebook: "If Vijay Mallya auctions Chris Gayle today, he can settle all the debts of Kingfisher Airlines and revive it!"

In fact Gayle is very frustrated with the quality of the bowlers he is facing of late and feels the opposition bowling is making him lazy and thus can manage only 4s and 6s.

In the best interest of T20 cricket, he has refused to play next year, if the bowling standards of other franchises do not improve.

- Gayle's franchise

Well, hopefully he has peaked very early in the tournament and will burn himself out by the closing stages!

This season of IPL is by far the most exciting of all seasons! So many last over exciting finishes, super overs!
Dhoni really means it when he says he likes to take the match into the last over. Most times it does work & he somehow manages to win. And the cameraman straight away zooms in on his wife Sakshi Dhoni (although the girl seated next to her is prettier, whoever she is?)
