Chris Gayle takes Royal Challengers to royal victory again
Chris Gayle with 85 runs from 50-ball led Royal Challengers to an easy victory over Kolkata Knight Riders' again. It wasn't a good start to the run-chase as opener Mayank Agarwal departed in the third over. Virat Kohli continued was in good form and batted well till the the middle. It wasn't a good sight after that as Delhi boys Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir were involved in a heated argument, but another Delhi boy, Rajat Bhatia, intervened and controlled the situation. The fall of wickets in one side didn't affect Gayle's style of batting as he was going for sixes and fours. Sunil Narine was the most economical bowler who gave only 17 in his four overs. Earlier, RCB skipper Virat Kohli asked KKR to bat .Apart from reading the pitch well, the move to give Moises Henriques the new ball worked wonders as the all-rounder removed the struggling Manvinder Bisla in the very first over of the innings. The belligerent Chris Gayle was in a destructive mood as the 50-ball 85 that he cracked was laced by four hits to the fence and nine big ones over it - needless to say, Kolkata Knight Riders' armour was punctured time and again. Royal Challengers Bangalore, like in their last fixture, comfortably chased down the total.

I recently spent 2 days at the Estuary Island Resort. Its location, scenic beauty and calming ambiance make such an impact on you- one really needs to experience to understand it. The 10 minute boat journey to reach the resort in itself is most thrilling and romantic especially if you are not anticipating it.Time at the resort passes so easily and so fast whether you are taking a walk in the compound, having a boat ride at sunset or being in the pool or even looking out into the sea. Bedrooms have every comfort one can think of and rooms with sea views are fantastic. Restaurant buffet with its rich and varied menu and facing the sea is not to be missed. In short my stay at the resort was one of the finest and memorable experiences. for reservations- reservations@thrhotels.com
