The 2021-22 edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 League began on Friday at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. The fans are having some gala time while watching some swashbuckling throughout the 10-over games. Meanwhile, West Indies legend Chris Gayle has once again shown why he is none other than the ‘Universe Boss’.

The Jamaican cricketer, who came out to bat at number four for Team Abu Dhabi (TAD), was on fire in the second match of the tournament against the Bangla Tigers (BT). Gayle smashed four consecutive boundaries (including 1 four and 3 sixes) in the sixth over of the first innings against leg-spinner Qais Ahmed

Here’s the full video of Gayle’s innings on November 19:

The nightmare for the Afghan cricketer didn’t end here as he conceded another six off the last ball of the over against Paul Stirling as Gayle had taken a single on the penultimate delivery.

BT skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and asked the opponents to bat first. Irishman Stirling emerged as the top-scorer of the batting side with his mesmerising knock of 59 runs off just 23 balls. On the other hand, Gayle stunned the spectators with his entertaining innings of 49* runs from 23 deliveries.

Coming to the bowling department, Isuru Udana was the pick of the bowlers for his side with his economical spell of 2-0-14-1. James Faulkner and Benny Howell were also able to tick the wickets column.

Faf and Co are down now to chase a humongous target of 146 runs in 10 overs at a run rate of more than 14 to register their maiden win of the league.
