Highest individual score & Fastest Hundred- 175 by Chris Gayle vs Pune Warriors, IPL 2013
That Aaron Finch did everything in his might but still ended four runs short of becoming the highest individual run-scorer in the history of T20 cricket, speaks volumes of the magnanimity of Chris Gayle’s brutal 175 off 66 balls against Pune Warriors in the 2013 IPL.
Gayle was well and truly unleashed that day as he smoked the Pune bowlers to all corners of the ground. The “Universe Boss’ set a plethora of records during his whirlwind assault which includes most sixes in a T20 inning , fastest T20 hundred [30 balls], and, of course, the highest individual T20 score .
Gayle has since then gone on to break his own record for most sixes in an innings but the other feats-highest individual score and fastest hundred- have still gone unchallenged. And, it will take something extraordinary to break either of them.
Can Rohit Sharma do the impossible?
