RCB beat Gujarat Lions by 21 runs
 
(Rajkot, Apr 18,2017):Riding on Chris Gayle's smashing fifty and Yuzvendra Chahal's threewicket haul, Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Gujarat Lions by 21 runs in their IPL encounter here today.

The swashbuckling West Indies opener blasted a blistering 38ball 77run innings, while skipper Virat Kohli scored 64 off 50 balls to power RCB to a massive 2132 in their stipulated 20 overs.

Opener Brendon McCullum then played a superb 72run off 44ball innings, studded with two fours and seven sixes but he didn't get the support from the other end as RCB restricted the Lions to 1927 to snap their threegame losing streak.

Young Ishan Kishan did come up with a 15ball 39run cameo but it was too late in the end.

Yuzvendra Chahal (3/31) was the pick of the bowlers for RCB as he picked up three crucial wickets Dwayne Smith (1), Suresh Raina (23) and McCullum in his four overs to derail Gujarat's runchase.

Earlier, Gayle and skipper Kohli gave Bangalore a blistering start as they amassed 45 in the first six overs and then went on to forge a 122run opening partnership off 76 balls at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

Gayle's innings was studded with five boundaries and seven massive sixes, while Kohli blasted seven fours and one six in his 50ball innings.

Travis Head (30) and Kedar Jadhav (38) then provided the late charge to take RCB across the 200mark. While Jadhav cracked five fours and two sixes, Head hit two fours and a six in his innings.

For Gujarat, Basil Thampi (1/31) and Dhawal Kulkarni (1/37) took one wicket each.
