Kolkata:

Destructive Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) batsman Chris Gayle Saturday credited Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batsmen especially Gautam Gambhir for posting an imposing total which eventually turned out to be match wining.

"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 the KKR, said he had no hard feelings against his former team.

"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.

He also hoped his team will bounce back in the tournament.

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