A super human effort breaking records at will.

Fastest individual 50 in IPL – 17 balls (Reached with a six)

Fastest individual 100 in t20 cricket – 30 balls (A free hit six to reach this, like he needed a free hit)

Fastest individual 150 in t20 cricket – 53 balls (Guess what? A six again here)

Longest six in this IPL – 119 meters (May have hit the Metro on MG road)

First player to hit 150 sixes in IPL (Second highest hasn’t reached 100 yet)

Fastest team hundred in IPL – 7.5 overs (Dilshan contributing almost zilch to it)

Fastest team double hundred in IPL – 15.5 overs

Highest opening partnership in IPL – 167

Most sixes by a batsman in an innings in t20 cricket – 17 (That’s a century in sixes alone)

Highest individual score in t20 cricket – 175* (Surpassing Brendon Mccullum’s 158* at the same venue in the first ever IPL match)

Highest total in t20 cricket – 263 for 5.

Oh, and he holds the record for most number of centuries in t20 format (11) and most number of hundreds in IPL (4) by the way.

This is from one of my earlier collection of the Gayle-mania.
