Chris Gayle turned on his beast mode against the hosts, Gujarat Lions to show his brilliance to the crowd of Rajkot by his fantastic knock of 77 runs in just 38 balls in the 20th match of IPL 2017. He also surpassed the milestone of 10000 runs in T20 cricket which is most by any batsman in world cricket.

As usual, Gayle started his innings slowly in the starting overs of the innings but later after reaching 10000 run mark, he bolstered his innings by smashing Gujarat bowlers all over the park. He took Ravindra Jadeja to the cleaners as he scored 21 of his over and smashed Shivil Koushik and Dwayne Smith for big blows in the 10th and 11th over of the innings.

Gayle escaped from jaws of losing his wicket when Brendon McCullum made an incredible effort to pull out a stunning catch at the boundary ropes but fortunate for Gayle as some part of McCullum’s hat touched the boundary rope which made umpire to signal Not out.

As soon as Chris Gayle took Gujarat bowlers to the cleaners, People took to Twitter to shower Chris Gayle in praise. Here are the best tweets on Chris Gayle –
