Warner ruins Gayle batting right-handed


//

David Warner has stunned cricket by batting right-handed against Chris Gayle in a Twenty20 game - and hitting the West Indies superstar for 6 4 4.

Warner and Gayle faced off in the Bangladesh Premier League and the Australian left-hander was looking to change things up against Gayle's spinners. It came off in jaw-dropping fashion.

Warner has wowed fans with switch-hitting before in T20 cricket, but this time he took things to a whole new level, startling Gayle in the process.

“It was one of those things [batting right-handed] at the back of my mind, as I couldn’t get Chris away because of his height and the lengths that he was bowling,” Warner said afterwards.

“I play golf right-handed, so I thought I might as well come and swing and clear the ropes. It came off.”

Warner was on 45 from 29 balls at the time and had just conceded two dot balls to Gayle in the penultimate over. After switching to right-handed, the Aussie whacked Gayle straight back over his head for six, swept a full toss for four, then found the rope with a reverse sweep.

He finished on 61 not out as his Sylhet Sixers team claimed a 27-run win over Gayle's Rangpur Riders.
