Chris Gayle pulled off a Chris Gayle on Friday as he smashed 32 runs in an over in the ongoing Global T20.

Playing for Vancouver Knights against Edmonton Royals, the West Indian took leg-spinner Shadab Khan to the cleaners in the 13th over, dealing in just fours and sixes. The over read 6, 6, 4, 4, 6, 6.

Gayle went on to score 94 runs off just 44 balls to help the Knights chase down Royals’ total of 165-9 with six wickets in hand.

Shadab finished with sorry figures of 4-0-66-0.

“Shadab is a great bowler, he is a top spinner,” Gayle said of the Pakistani opponent during the post-match presentation.

“It’s a small ground and wicket doesn’t spin much. Just one of the days as a batter. He’ll learn from this.”


Earlier in the day, Royals recovered from being 52-5 at one stage to set the Knights a respectable 166-run target, thanks to Ben Cutting’s 41-ball 72 and Mohammad Nawaz’s 27-ball 40.

Cutting had a lot more to offer, this time with the ball, picking three wickets even as Gayle led from the front to see his side home with 21 balls to spare.
