Gayle-storm wreaks havoc at at Wankhede as RCB beat Mumbai Indians by nine wickets

Mumbai: Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Mumbai Indians by nine wickets in their IPL match against here today.

Chris Gayle smashed his way to an unbeaten 82 as Royal Challengers Bangalore crushed Mumbai Indians at their own den.

Gayle remained quite in the early part of RCB run chase of 142 but exploded later on, hitting five fours and six sixes as the visitors romped home with two overs to spare after the visiting bowlers produced a disciplined show by restricting the home side to 141 for six at the Wankhede Stadium.

Gayle's 59-ball blitz was his fourth 80-plus knock this IPL season.

The West Indian reached his fifty with a huge six of Pragyan Ojha in the 11th over. He struck Ojha for three successive sixes in that over which saw the bowler conceding 22 runs. That over virtually changed the complexion of the game after Mumbai kept it tight, not allowing the match run away quickly to RCB's favour.

Gayle was though lucky early in his innings as he was dropped by Dwayne Smith off the bowling of R P Singh when he was on 21 in the sixth over and Mumbai paid a heavy price for that costly mistake.

With the win today, RCB jumped to fourth in the league table with 13 points from 12 matches

Brief Score:

Mumbai Indians: 141 for six wickets in 20 overs (Dinesh Karthik 44; Harshal Patel 2/24, Muttiah Muralitharan 2/24, R Vinay Kumar 2/ 34).

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 142 for one in 18 overs (Chris Gayle 82 not out, Virat Kohli 36 not out; Pragyan Ojha 1/25).
