Chris Gayle smashes 50 from 12 balls to match fastest Twenty20 half-century

Chris Gayle smashes 50 from 12 balls to match fastest Twenty20 half-centuryWest Indian opener Chris Gayle, on Monday, equaled the record for the fastest fifty in T20s as he smashed 51 off 12 balls in a Big Bash League match.

Gayle came in to bat for the Melbourne Renegades after they were set a target of 171 runs by the Adelaide Strikers in the 32nd match of the league.

In the first over, off Greg West, Gayle hit four maximums to start the chase. He had gathered 26 runs off just six balls at that point.

He scored just two runs in the second over off one ball after losing his opening partner Tom Cooper for naught. However in the third over, Gayle again went for the kill against Ben Laughlin; two sixes and a boundary followed.

Gayle was on 45 off just 11 balls as the fourth over started. The left-hander was served a tossed up, flighted delivery which cleared long-on easily as Gayle raised his bat to acknowledge the record.

He was later caught behind on 56 off 17 balls with Travis Head accounting for him.

Gayle already holds the record for the fastest century in T20s when he scored a ton off only 30 balls for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League.
