There is no denying that he bowled a horrific last over. Samuels is a quality T20 bowler and can take down any bowler on his day. He gave away 29 runs, so excluding that his figure was 3-0-34-2. That includes Gayle's wicket.

It can happen to any bowler even to the best ones. Here are few expensive figures --

JM Anderson 4.0 0 64 1 16.00
SCJ Broad 4.0 0 60 0
B Lee 4.0 0 56 1
Mohammad Sami 4.0 0 54 1
SL Malinga 4.0 0 54 0
N Samuels 4.0 0 52 0 13.00
SM Pollock 4.0 0 52 1 13.00
R Rampaul 4.0 0 52 1

All these bowlers recovered and some are considered best in the modern game now. So Rubel will take some time, figure out the mistakes and will come back strong.

biggest question is, will Gayle recover after such a horrific series? He got out to a bowler who had his worst match to date and according to you might not ever recover.
