The smashing knock came at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore against a hapless Pune Warriors attack who were left to chase more than 200 for the win.
Interestingly, Bangalore did not have a great start, scoring only three off the first over. But after that it was a Gayle show. In the second over, Ishwar Pandey was smashed for 21 runs but there were two overs that followed with only nine runs scored off them.
Gayle teed off from there. Mitchell Marsh was banged for four sixes in the same over and 28 came from it, which was the fifth of the innings, before Ali Murtuza went for 18 in the seventh. Gayle’s 50 came from 17 balls.
Aaron Finch brought himself on for the eighth over and Gayle went after him as well. Dilshan took a single first ball before Gayle smacked four more sixes in that over to get the side to 109/0 in 8 overs of which Gayle had 95 to his name.
Gayle’s 30-ball century broke the record for the quickest in IPL cricket, scored by Yusuf Pathan.
He did not stop there. Every over, there were fours and sixes that kept getting hit
In turn, Gayle broke a truckload of records. He broke Brendon McCullum’s record of 13 sixes in an IPL innings apart from getting to his century in such a quick-fire fashion. He also now holds the record for having the highest score in IPL cricket as breaking McCullum’s 158 in the first edition of the tournament as as well as the highest in T20 cricket.
