Chris Gayle and five sixes in an over

Pin It

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman Chris Gayle decided to play his signature game, when his side was struggling against the Pune Warriors India (PWI) in their IPL 2012 match on Tuesday.

Leg-spinner Rahul Sharma bore the brunt as Gayle launched into him hitting five consecutive sixes as 31 runs came off that over and RCB seemed to be back on track.

Gayle raced to 81 off 47 balls as he hit Ashish Nehra to notch up his eighth six but the veteran seamer bowled a perfect delivery in the blockhole that cleaned up Gayle. The Jamaican had scored 81 off 48 balls with four boundaries and eight sixes.
