- West Indies take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series
- Stormy Chris Gayle’s bat spoke a lot in the third T20
West Indies’ stormy batsman Chris Gayle’s bat remained silent in the last five T20 Internationals, due to which he faced a lot of criticism. He scored 24 runs in three matches against South Africa while he could only manage 17 runs in the opening two matches against Australia. But Gayle, popularly known as the ‘Universe Boss’, made a tremendous comeback in the third T20 against Australia. He not only played a half-century innings by raining sixes and fours but also made a strong record. Thanks to his innings, West Indies got a hat-trick of victory.
These records were recorded in the name of Gayle
Batting at number three, Gayle scored 67 runs in 38 balls. He hit 4 fours and 7 sixes in his innings. This is the 14th fifty of his T20 International career. At the same time, talking about the record, during this innings, Gayle completed 14,000 runs in T20 cricket. He is the first player to do so. At the same time, he has accomplished the feat of scoring 1000 T20 runs since turning 40. He is the third player to achieve this feat. The 41-year-old Gayle has become the only player from a full member country to score the youngest T20 International fifty.
Gayle adjudged player of the match
Chris Gayle was awarded the Player of the Match award for his brilliant innings. He expressed happiness on his wonderful return. Gayle said that it has been a wonderful journey. I am very happy for Windies to win the series. Congratulations to Captain Nicholas Pooran for winning the series against Australia. We all know I was struggling. So it felt good to score runs. I want to dedicate this run to my teammates. West Indies have taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series after winning the third T20I.
