Kolkata: IPL 8 first match against KKR at Eden Gardens. Not a very easy task for Virat Kohli’s team. But they won convincingly with the help of ‘Gayle Hurricane’. Obviously Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli is now the happiest man in the team.  Saturday after the match Kohli said that this is one of their better win in IPL history.

RCB struggled initially but edged past the KKR total of 177/6 with three wickets and an over to spare, courtesy a brilliant knock from Chris Gayle who scored 96 from 56 deliveries.Chris Gayle

“That’s probably one of our better wins. We spoke about playing fearless cricket and the boys backed each other. The two bowlers won it in the end,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony referring to the bowlers Abu Nechim (5) and Harshal Patel (9) who saw their team home.

Speaking on the man-of-the-match Gayle, he said,”The way Chris batted, he shows what a world class player he is.”

The skipper added they were a bit nervous at the start of the match, specially the youngsters but he was happy with the way they came back in the game.

“The guys in the beginning were probably a bit nervous and the outfield didn’t help them either. But, their comeback in the end was great,” concluded Kohli.
