Blockbuster stuff! Chris Gayle, the Universe Boss, can still give nightmares to the bowlers. Gayle, who was known for giving a hard-time to the opposition bowlers, is hailed as one of the most destructive batters to have ever played the T20 game.
Chris Gayle Turned Back The Clock
On Monday, the swashbuckling batter displayed his power hitting in the Legends League match when he smashed three consecutive sixes off former Sri Lankan all-rounder Tillakaratne Dilshan’s deliveries.
Though Gayle’s team World Giants lost the game by 35 runs, however, the superstar batter stole all the limelight with his stunning sixes.
The Asia Lions put down a strong 99 on the board in a rain-shortened contest of 10 overs. World Giants, who had 10 overs to complete the chase, could only muster 64/5, with Gayle leading the way with 23 off 16 balls.
After the World Giants opted to bowl first in a 10-over per side contest, Asia Giants managed 99 for 3 in 10 overs with a stunning cameo of 19-ball 44* by Misbah-ul-Haq. In reply, Finch & Co. only managed 64 for 5 with Chris Gayle being the top-scorer for the side with 23 runs.
During his brief stay, Chris Gayle turned back the clock as he smashed Dilshan for three successive sixes. The video of the stunning sixes has been making rounds on the internet and has made everyone nostalgic.
