Gayle storm hands Rangpur Riders maiden BPL title

Johnson Charles came up with a man of the match performance

Gayle's tally of total sixes in T20 cricket is now 819 sixes, the most by any batsman.

The explosive West Indies batsman on Tuesday smashed an unbeaten 146 runs off 69 balls for Rangpur Riders in the final of Bangladesh Premier League against Dhaka Dynamites.

The West Indies icon broke his own previous record of 17 sixes in an innings which he had set against Pune Warriors while representing Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The 38-year-old from Jamaica also crossed the landmark of 100 sixes in the BPL.

His unbeaten 201-run partnership with New Zealand's Brendan McCullum steered Rangpur Riders to 206 for 1.

He also became the first to score 20 centuries in T20s.

During the course of his belligerent knock, Gayle also became the first batsman to hit 20 hundreds in T20s, which was studded with 18 towering sixes and five fours. Dhaka, however, had a chance to avoid such punishment when Gayle was on 22 and offered a straightforward chance to Dhaka skipper Shakib Al Hasan at extra cover off the bowling of Mosaddek Hossain in the sixth over, but Shakib spilled the chance. But the best was saved for last as the Jamaican six machine hit an unbelievable 18 sixes - an eye-watering 16 of them in the last 10 overs - and only five fours.

Sent in, Riders suffered a massive blow when superstar opener Chris Gayle departed for three in the fifth over but Charles and McCullum came together in a 151-run, second wicket stand to drive the innings.

The swashbuckling left-hander brought up his half-century off 33 balls by hitting pacer Khaled Ahmed for a couple of boundaries and a six.
