Gayle fails again in Big Bash

Social Share

SYDNEY – West Indies opener Chris Gayle’s lean run in Australia’s Big Bash League continued yesterday.
Gayle fell for nine off 16 balls and his Sydney Thunder slumped to a sixth successive defeat that left them in the cellar position in the eight-team tournament.
Thunder lost to Sydney Sixes by four wickets in a bottom-of-the-table clash at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Usman Khawaja hit an unbeaten 66 of 47 balls to help Thunder to 132 for six, but it was not enough to stop Sixers from completing victory with an over remaining.
Gayle, using the new ball with his off-spin, bagged two for 17 before Daniel Hughes’ unbeaten 51 from 36 balls guided the Sixers to their first win of the tournament. (HG)
