#4 Chris Gayle, 116 - Barisal Burners Vs Dhaka Gladiators, 2012

Event the legends fail to take their team home

The T20 Master has amassed more than 10000 runs in this format. He has played for 18 teams across the globe. He represented Barisal Burners in 2012 Bangladesh Premier League. In the 10th match of the league, they faced Dhaka Gladiators. Barisal Burners won the toss and chose to field. Dhaka Gladiators posted a mammoth 208 runs in their 20 overs with the help of Imran Nazir's 58 and Azar Mahmood's 77.

Chasing a daunting target, Burners started their top order batsmen for 7,5 and 0. Gayle partnered with Mithun and took the score to 163 before he got out. The Jamaican superstar scored 116 runs with the help of 11 sixes and six boundaries. The team managed only 187 runs losing the game by a margin of 21 runs.

Despite scoring 62% of his team runs, Chris Gayle could not drag the Burners to a famous win. There was hardly any contribution from his teammates resulting in a match losing century for Chris Gayle.
