Gayle dedicates history-making feat to Caribbean fans

United Kingdom,Sports, Fri, 26 Apr 2013 IANS

Kingston (Jamaica), April 26 (IANS/CMC) West Indies opening batsman Chris Gayle who scored the fastest century in professional cricket says he is dedicating his history- making feat to fans in the Caribbean.

Gayle established a series of records on his way to an undefeated 175 for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against Pune Warriors in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match Tuesday.

The Jamaican batsman scored the fastest 50 in IPL history, fastest 100 in T20 history and the highest individual score in IPL history.

"I had a chance to speak with Chris via social media after the game and he wanted me to let the fans in the Caribbean know that he was dedicating the knock to them," said Wavell Hinds, president of the West Indies Players Association (WIPA).

"He told me that it was very rewarding to see the positive early reactions to his innings from the regional supporters."

Gayle's innings, which included seven dot balls, four singles, eight fours and 11 sixes, ensured RCB completed a 130-run win over the Warriors.

"I am sure that we speak for all true fans of West Indies cricket when we say that his innings will go down as the greatest in the brief history of T20 cricket," said Hinds.

"We wish him continued success, for the remainder of the IPL, and certainly hope that he will bring his current form to the ICC Champions Trophy later this year."
