Summary

  • The banned Australian master blaster pulled a new party trick out of his hat during a Twenty20 match on Wednesday night (AEDT) to stun viewers and polarising West Indies figure Chris Gayle.
  • It was during the final over of the Sylhet Sixers innings against Gayle’s Rangpur Riders that Warner switched his batting stance to front up as a right-hander.
  • The first ball he faced right-handed he belted Gayle back over the bowler’s head for a six.
  • The next two balls Warner hit to the boundary for four, smashing 14 runs off three balls and finishing his innings on an unbeaten 61 off 36 balls.
  • “It was one of those things at the back of my mind as I couldn’t get Chris (Gayle) away because of his height and the lengths that he was bowling,” Warner said post-match.
