Mumbai: He played a crucial part in his team's comprehensive nine-wicket win with a blazing 82-run knock, but Royal Challengers Bangalore opener Chris Gayle credited his team's bowlers for setting up the crushing nine-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians.
"It was a very good wicket to bat on (when we batted) to be honest with you. First of all I must say it was a very good toss to win. The new ball tends to do a lot here. Credit must go to our bowlers who utilised the conditions brilliantly.
"I would actually say our bowlers won this match for us. To restrict such a good batting line up in the first six overs and also get key wickets was a tremendous effort," said the left-handed West Indian power-hitter.
