Ricky Ponting: "I may lose most of my finger nails. Disappointing not to have won the game. We have to analyse our game. I think with our bowing today we were a bit behind. We had a good chat about Jaspreet and he didn't let anyone down."
Virat Kohli: "Chris batted beautifully. We knew 157 was enough, The dew came on. They way they fielded was good. The way Unadkat bowled that over towards the end was good."
Gayle is the Man of the Match: "I might come out swinging early in another game. I needed to stay there. The ball was seaming around. The key was to put up a partnership with Christian. If I was bowling offspinners I'd probably take 4 for 10 runs because I'm the best offspinner around!"
Malinga is among the few bowlers to have kept Gayle quiet in the IPL. R Ashwin is another. Malinga has bowled 39 balls to Gayle in the IPL, conceding 36 runs that included five fours. Against Ashwin, Gayle has scored at a run a ball in the IPL - 33 off 33.
At the very least, Gayle could become the second-highest run-getter in all T20 cricket. He is currently on 4804 runs, just 17 behind David Hussey. Brad Hodge leads the list with 5274.
