Despite being in the twilight of his career Windies star batsman Chris Gayle continues to make records tumble after becoming the first player to score 900 sixes in T20 cricket.

After a slow start to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) season, Gayle sprang to life against the Khulna Titans getting his first half-century of the season with 55 off 40 goals. 

The stand was crucial in helping the team register a six-wicket win but he also became the first batsman ever in the history of the format to smash 900 sixes.

Overall so far, Gayle has scored 12,189 runs in the format out of which 5,400 were contributed just by the sixes which is quite marvellous.

Another 3720 runs came in fours as he smashed 930 of them thus far. This essentially means that he scored nearly 75 per cent of his runs in just boundaries.

The player currently enjoys a huge lead as far as the clearing the boundary rope is concerned with the next closest player being Kieron Pollard who has scored a total of 557.  Brendon McCullum, who played 365 T20s in his career has hit the ball out of the park 484 times.

Rangpur Riders coach Tom Moody has warned that Windies stars batsman Chris Gayle is due a big performance with the bat, following a slow start to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

Life in the BPL this season has been a mighty struggle so far for the big left-hander.  In four games to date, Gayle the tournament’s record runs scorer has hit a total of 39 runs.  The player’s stay at the crease so far includes totals of one, eight, 23 and seven in the four games he’s played. 

The total seems a far cry from the 485 runs Gayle racked up in 11 matches last season at an average of 53.88.  The performance left the West Indian as the tournament’s record runs scorer.  Moody has, however, backed the player to find form sooner rather than later.

“I’m sure Chris is frustrated. Chris has got a record in T20 cricket that no one’s close to. He is also a very proud man and we know that a player of his quality is going to shine at any given moment,” Moody said.

“Once Chris comes to the party with the bat, I feel for the side that’s gonna be in his way.”
