0.2 Ahmed to Gayle, FOUR, no luck for the bowler, produces the outside edge as Gayle is pegged on the crease and pushes at one leaving him outside off, ball flies past slip
0.3 Ahmed to Gayle, FOUR, right through Sachin at mid off, Gayle had made room outside leg and thwacked a fuller one, it flew on the bounce to Sachin and went through him

0.4 Ahmed to Gayle, SIX, carnage, Nechim is leaking runs, Gayle takes a step outside leg, gets under a full ball and hammers it over the sightscreen
0.5 Ahmed to Gayle, 2 runs, it’s all happening, Gayle was eyeing the deep midwicket boundary, but did not get the connection with enough meat to take it over the boundary, in fact it was almost a catch as Pollard came running to his right, the ball bounced close to his toes, he overran it, the ball almost trickled over the ropes before he dived to stop it from rolling over
0.6 Ahmed to Gayle, FOUR, another one, Mumbai, take cover, Gayle again makes room outside leg, this is again in his slot, full and close enough to be bashed over mid on with that monstrous swing, that is the most expensive opening over in the IPL
