After guiding Royal Challengers Bangalore to a crushing 51-run victory against Somerset on Monday, Chris Gayle said he was keen to win the next game against South Australia Redbacks with big margin.

A buoyant Royal Challengers Bangalore will cross swords with South Australia Redbacks here today as the race for the semi-final spots in the Champions League Twenty20 intensifies.

"No one got a 50 in the first two games. We had a discussion. So, whosoever got in this game, try to play a bit longer. Hopefully we can win the next one with a big margin as well," Gayle was quoted as saying on PTI.

Assuming that Warriors (four points from three matches) defeat Somerset (three from three) today, RCB could qualify for the semi-finals if they overcome the Redbacks' challenge.

Gayle said he found the going tough in spite of slamming 86 off 46 balls. "I am very happy with my performance.

It was a key game for us. It wasn't the best of starts, it was a bit difficult to bat on initially. In the end, I got close to 20 overs which was good for me," the Jamaican said.
