Gayle’s captain Virat Kohli has however believes that Gayle’s form is not a worry. ‘’I am confident that Gayle can come up with runs when the team needs it’’, he reasoned. Kohli also said, ‘’You can certainly be rest assured that Gayle will come good as the tournament progresses. He would score a century when the team will need it. I am not too worried about Gayle, because the other guys are stepping up nicely. Cricket is all about grabbing the opportunity, if some others fail.
The likes of Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson have stepped up to the plate to get the runs on the board. RCB won their first match when they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 45 runs, but succumbed to a 7-wicket loss in their second match against Delhi Daredevils.
