In 2013, Chris Gayle in a match against newbies Pune Warriors India decided to throw a grand party at the Chinnaswamy in Bengaluru. The crowd at the stadium had no clue that a ‘Gayle storm’ is about to hit the IPL.
The universe boss that day showed why he is the demigod of T20 cricket as he recorded the highest individual score in the shortest format of the game. Gayle scored a ridiculous 175* alone in a 20 over inning which one could have ever imagined. Gayle on that day wasn’t only clearing the boundary ropes he was making a mockery off it as he several sixes outside the stadium.
