Target of 190 was imposing, says Gayle

Kolkata, Apr 29: Hard hitting Royal Challengers Bangalore opener Chris Gayle on Saturday credited Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir's knock for posting a daunting target which turned out to be the match winner.

Gayle, who scored a 58-ball 86, said posting a target of 190 was imposing.

"On this wicket 190 was an imposing target. Eden Garden wicket is slow and low and credit goes to their batsmen especially Gambhir for scoring the total they did," Gayle said after the match which his team lost by 47 runs.

Gayle, who earlier played for Kolkata, said he had no hard feelings for his former team after losing both games at home and away.

"There are no hard feelings. We are like a family. Both the teams play aggressive cricket and play for victory. Unfortunately, I had to be on the losing side in both of our games...that's life," he said.

"Shah Rukh is a very friendly person. I have been a part of his team earlier and he is a respectable and loving man. Win or lose there is no love lost from his point of view," said Gayle about KKR co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Gayle hoped his team will bounce back in the upcoming games.

"There are still some matches left and we hope to do well and possibly bounce back in the tournament."
