Rightly called the brand ambassador of T2o cricket, Chris Gayle has set up another world record in the shortest format of the game.
Practically owning almost all batting records when it come to T2o cricket, Gayle now is the first person ever to hit 1000 T20 sixes. He made the record in the match against the Rajasthan Royals.
The Universe Boss was in the mood on the day as he came out to bat in the first over itself after Mandeep Singh went to the pavilion with a golden duck. Usually, Gayle takes a bit of time before murdering the bowling but this game was different. He knew a lot was riding on it and the left-hander literally attacked the opposition from the word go. He stitched a partnership of 120 runs with skipper KL Rahul first and in that, the latter only scored 46 runs.
The West Indian left-hander scored 99 runs off 66 balls before getting bowled by Jofra Archer. He was furious with himself for this as he got out just one short of what would have been a magnificent ton.
As far as this record is concerned, no one is even near to the Universe Boss. The list goes on with Kieron Pollard (690), Brendon McCullum (485), Shane Watson (467), and Andre Russell (447).
