Champion Gayle breaks his own record; smashes 18-sixes in a T20 inning

Chris Gayle has registered another record in T20 cricket under his name by hitting 18-sixes in a T20 inning of Bangladesh Premier League 2017 final.

The explosive batsman on Tuesday smashed an unbeaten 146 runs off 69 balls for Rangpur Riders in the final against Dhaka Dynamites to help his team lift the Bangladesh Premier League 2017 title. With this feat, he also became the first batsman to breach the 11,000 run mark in T20 cricket. The closest player next on the list is Brendon McCullum, who has 8526 runs in his kitty from 309 matches.

Gayle also hit a mind-boggling 18 sixes in the match which is also a record in itself. He now has 801 T20 sixes to his name.

The previous record for the maximum number of sixes in a T20 match was also held by Gayle when he smashed 17 sixes for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Pune Warriors during Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013.

Twitterati went gaga after Gayle’s destructive inning:

Put into bat first, Gayle’s Rangpur Riders posted 206 runs for the loss of one wicket in their 20 overs. Fellow Windies batsman Johnson Charles departed for 3 in the second over as Shakib Al Hasan struck for his team.
