Gayle shines with 53 on IPL return - NationNews Barbados

"We had enough (runs), maybe we leaked few boundaries, maybe our game-plan was slightly wrong; but for us to get the end like that, to get it to the last over, to the last ball, quite proud of the boys for sticking there when the game was completely gone by the time second-last over was bowled", Morris said in the post-match press conference. FIXTURES RCB lost the hard-fought game against Punjab at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium by eight wickets. However, RCB pacer Yuzvendra Chahal bowled a nail-biting final over to take the game to the last ball.

Pooran came in bat at the last ball of the innings when Punjab need one run from the last ball. A million things were running in my mind. I never wanted to be in that position. "For my part, I am eager and willing to bat wherever and whenever the team needs me, and to help RCB advance our campaign to realise our potential and win this league", he added.

Agarwal played a knock of 45 off 25 and provided a solid start along with skipper KL Rahul (61).

"This pitch looks a lot better than what we had in Sharjah".

"I thought it was important to keep fit".


Gayle has been one of the most dominant batsmen in the IPL's history with 4,537 runs, six hundreds and an average of 41, leaving him eighth on the all-time list of tournament run-scorers. He said, 'For me he is the greatest T20 player.

"When Chris is batting, you always have a chance of winning the game". When he is at the crease, there is a different mood inside the camp.

However, with captain Rahul amassing 448 runs and Agarwal, 382, there has been no room for Gayle but he said the time on the sidelines had done him well.

Interestingly, KXIP's only other victory in the ongoing season also came against the Kohli's side when they sealed a crushing 97-run triumph at the Dubai International Stadium on September 24.
