A rare yorker outside off from Ashok Dinda that Gayle missed was perhaps the only moral victory he afforded Warriors before reaching his century, a landmark he celebrated with a punch of the gloves then kneeling down and raising his arms. But his assault on the Pune bowling attack on Tuesday was in a different category all together, with Gayle’s 17 sixes also a record for a T20 innings. PWI could only make runs for the loss of nine wickets in their 20 overs. Gayle completed a fine day’s work by taking two wickets for five runs. Yes, the Jamaican marauder is known for his bludgeoning power, but his wondrously entertaining innings against PWI was more like a once in a generation knock. AB de Villier was in no mood to relax and played a sensational 8-ball 31 cameo to help the score past the run mark,first ever instance in the history of IPL.

The sole PWI player who could come out of the carnage with his head held high would have been Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Murtaza, after conceding 27 runs in a single over must have been in state of complete dhris. Bowlers had a terrible time and most of them went for over 15 runs in an over. Ask Mitchell Marsh, whose decent run with the ball this tournament was blown out of his memory, with his first over going for Gayle completed a fine day’s work by taking two wickets for five runs.

By the end of his innings he had amassed 17 sixes and 13 fours as Cris recorded a total of for five, the highest innings total in a Twenty20 match. Unlike some of his innings this season where he was relatively restrained at the start, he came out prepared to attack 20013 the outset today. The majestic six he essayed off Finch that cleared the long on region and landed on the roof was a spellbinding shot to say the least.

By the end of the innings, it was hard not to feel sympathy for the bowlers. Both stitched a quickfire partnership and curiously enough, de Villiers was the dominant partner of the two by compiling 31 runs of just 12 balls.


Gayle decided to target the spinner with the turn, slog-sweeping and then smashing him flat for two sixes, then making Finch regret the move to bring himself on, hammering him for four sixes, all on the on-side. Gayle soon reached his hundred with yet another six off pacer Ashok Dinda.

Match time table for IPL 7. Gayle has been having a hit-and-miss IPL in thus far, with low scores coupled with an 85 off 50 balls and a 92 off Gayle opened up his shoulders in the second over of the match, while facing Ishwar Pandey.

He signed off in the match with a gangnam style gig at picking up two wickets in the only over he bowled – all a contrast to the man who made his first international appearance against India in Toronto inwhen it seemed hard to imagine a debutant as shy as him would one day become one of the most colourful characters on a cricket field.

It has to be remembered the shot that Gayle played off Wright was nothing more than a miss-hit.
