Gayle leads Gladiators to final

MIRPUR – Chris Gayle powered to 114, his tenth Twenty20 hundred in Dhaka Gladiators’ race to the final of the Bangladesh Premier League today.

The Gladiators made 197 and in response Sylhet Royals gave spirited chase, but ultimately fell just short of the 24 runs they needed in the final over, finishing on 193 for 6. †

With five runs needed off the last ball, Elton Chigumbura swung Mashrafe Mortaza to deep midwicket, where Darren Stevens held the catch.

Royals captain Mushfiqur Rahim made a fluent 86 in the run chase.

The result validated Gladiators’ last-minute purchase of Gayle who blasted 114 off 51 deliveries, hitting 12 towering sixes. His ninth six was the longest in the tournament at 103 metres and it nearly reached the second tier of the stands behind long-on.††
