Global T20 Canada 2019: Chris Gayle’s unbeaten 122 off 54 balls sets Twitter on fire

Posted On

West Indies international Chris Gayle set the Global T20 Canada 2019 on fire with a whirlwind 122 not out off just 54 balls to help Vancouver Knights register the second-highest total in T20 history.


Gayle’s scintillating knock included 12 sixes and seven fours. He, now, has become the first batsman to smash 1000 boundaries and register 22 hundred in T20 cricket.

It was Gayle’s knock that powered Vancouver Knights to a surreal 276/3 in 20 overs. His innings got his fans excited as they took to Twitter and applauded the Universe Boss.





The match was unfortunately called off due to the threat of lightning and thunderstorms in the city.

“I’m not feeling any sweat. It’s cool conditions. Decent total on the board, so happy with that. I can’t be too safe here in Toronto. It’s a good wicket for batting. I wanted 200 personally, but that didn’t happen in this game. Overcast conditions, so hopefully get a good bowl in and get the two points, but it won’t be easy. They want me out of the game, that’s unfortunate (laughs). I’ll be around,” said Gayle after the match.
