Chris Gayle Equals Shahid Afridi's Record

Chris Gayle smashed five sixes against Bangladesh in the third and final One-day International (ODI) at Warner Park in St Kitts to become the most number of six hitter in International cricket. The swashbuckling West Indies batsman, who scored a blistering 73-run from 66 balls equalled Pakistan superstar Shahid Afridi's feat of identical number of sixes. Both the batsmen now have 476 sixes against their name. Gayle achieved the feat in 443 matches while Afridi reached the mark in 524 matches. However, Gayle's power-packed knock on top of the order failed to help West Indies clinch a ODI series victory against Bangladesh -- who won the series 2-1.

Gayle, however can surpass Afridi to become highest six-hitter when the West Indies take on Bangladesh in the first of three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) on August 1.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
