Bangalore, May 7 : Kings XI Punjab skipper Adam Gilchrist on Friday  doffed his hat on Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Chris Gayle, describing the West Indian's brutal match-winning innings of 107 in the Indian Premier League match here as "a phenomenal knock".


"That was a phenomenal knock. The wicket was doing a bit and he did not get bat on ball for 10 balls. Then he took the game away from us. We were shell-shocked actually," Gilchrist said after KXIP lost by 85 runs.

Gayle hit a record nine sixes and 10 fours in his 49-ball knock and Gilchrist said his side were thinking of chasing more than 230 when the West Indian was going great guns.

"It is a small ground, there were a few mishits from Gayle that carried over. We pulled back a little bit", said Gilchrist,. PTI.
