T10: Gayle smashes 84* off 22

Chris Gayle T10

Northern Warriors went for their big hits right away through Lendl Simmons and Waseem Muhammad. He was in his elements from the first over, pouncing on any error in line and lengths from the bowlers. All his sixes and boundaries were hit effortlessly.

The fastest half-century in worldwide T20 cricket also came off 12 balls - India's Yuvraj Singh pummelling England in 2007.

After Bangla Tigers captain Andre Fletcher won the toss and invited Warriors to bat first, his decision backfired as Pooran led from the front to power his team to a match-winning total of 162/4 in 10 overs. UAE's 18-year-old opener Alishan Sharafu scored 33 while Pakistan worldwide Mohammad Hafeez contributed with 20 runs.

Qalandars got off to a poor start as opener Tom Banton was run out in the fifth ball of the first over, courtesy a mix-up with partner Sharjeel Khan. Wright did not spare Junaid Siddique in the second over and hit him for a six and a boundary.

However, Jamie Overton managed to entice him LBW on the third authorized supply of the over, ending a superb knock of 76 off 34 deliveries. Ali was the first wicket to fall following which Sharafu joined forces with the veteran Mohammad Hafeez to take the innings forward. Sharafu hit Haq to deep mid-wicket for his second six. At the halfway mark, Qalandars were 49 for 1.

He will move down a rank to executive chair in a move he said will give him more time to focus on his other projects. Operating income at AWS scaled as well, from $2.60 billion in Q4 2019 to $3.56 billion in the most recent quarter.

Sri Lanka's 22-year-old pacer Dhananjaya Lakshan bowled a tighter seventh over giving away just five runs. Hafeez too followed, caught and bowled by Naveed Ul Haq, for 20 in the eighth over.

Laurie Evans lifted McCoy for a six over mid-wicket but fell on the fifth ball of that over by getting caught at third man for 8. Zahid gave away just one run off the last two balls to stop Tigers from reaching the target.

Gayle started the chase with three fours and a six off consecutive balls in Yamin Ahmadzai's opening over of the innings, before smashing three successive sixes off a Sompal Kami's over, which yielded 27 runs.

While Pooran hit three consecutive sixes off Mohammad Irfan in the sixth over, he smashed a couple of sixes and a four off Mujeeb Ur Rahman's following over to register a 17-ball half-century.
