Thanks to his massive hit off Hasan Ali, Gayle surpassed AB De Villiers to become the batsman with the most number of sixes in the World Cup. The third place belongs to Australia’s Ricky Ponting with 31 maximums.
Chris Gayle scored a brilliant half century with the help of three sixes and was still batting as West Indies inched towards victory.
