Chasing Arabians’ moderate total of 97 for 4, Gayle helped his team Abu Dhabi reach the target in 5.3 overs with nine wickets in hand.

The ‘Universe Boss’ completed his half-century off just 12 balls and equalled the fastest fifty in T10 history recorded by Rajputs’ wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Shahzad in 2018.

Gayle faced 22 balls in the knock with strikes of 0,0,4,4,4,6,6,6,6,4,6,4,6,1,6,6,1,4,2,1,1 and 6.
