Video Clip: Chris Gayle 92 off just 47 balls vs Chittagong Vikings
Chris Gayle didn’t score too many runs in his first two matches this third season of Bangladesh Premier League 2015. 16 runs in two innings was not worth the money his franchise Barisal Bulls had paid him.
But against Chittagong Vikings, he showed the world why he was rated so highly by his franchise, and why is he the best in this format.
He took his time to become set in the wicket. He let his younger partner Mehedi Maruf dominate in the first few overs. But once he got his eye in, he was unstoppable. Hitting the offspin of Dilshan and Mendis at will, he launched a blistering attack on Taskin Ahmed as well.
When he finished the match with four sixes in an over off Mendis, he was unbeaten on 92 off 47. With 6 fours and 9 sixes. Ladies and gentleman, the big man from Jamaica has arrived.
P.S. Gayle is likely to face Mustafizur Rahman tomorrow at 6:30 pm in the Dhaka Barisal match. It will be a great treat if both are at the top of their mark.
