Chris Gayle t20 biggest and t20 best individual innings

The knock Who else but Christopher Henry Gayle? The self-proclaimed ‘Universe Boss’ put on a clinic in the sixth edition of the IPL, amassing an improbable, unthinkable yet incredible 175no in a single T20 innings. The carnage started in the second over when the brutish left-hander spanked five fours off the bowling of Ishwar Pandey. Deprived of the strike by Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dlishan, Gayle took his frustration out on Australian allrounder Mitchell Marsh, who conceded four sixes and a four from his first over that cost 28 runs.
At this point, Gayle had arrived at his half-century in just 17 deliveries. Three overs later the Jamaican repeated the damage, this time to another Australian in Aaron Finch, who was also smacked for 28. In the ninth over – the ninth over – Gayle launched Ashok Dinda out of the stadium to bring up his century in just 31 balls – the fastest ever in T20 cricket. After taking a few overs to compose himself, Gayle took 26 off the 15th over and combined with AB de Villiers for a quick-fire partnership of 44 from 15 balls. He finished the innings undefeated on 175 in a team total of 5-263. In reply, Pune were bowled out for 133, with Gayle capturing 2-5 from one over. Fair day out for Gayle.

The numbers Runs: 175 | Balls: 66 | Fours: 13 | Sixes: 17 | Strike rate: 265.15.
