Sabbir Rahman of Bangladesh, on Sunday, played an innings that completely blew Gayle and his Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) record away.
Till Sunday, Gayle held the record for the highest individual score for a batsman (112) in BPL.
Sabbir however, played an innings that completely eclipsed Gayle’s record, as he went on to score 122 runs from 61 balls, in a match between Barisal Bulls and Rajshahi Kings, at the Shere Bangla stadium, in Mirpur, Bangladesh.
The 24-year-old hit nine sixes and as many fours, on his way to the record-breaking score.
However, Sabir’s efforts went in vain, as Rajshahi failed to chase down the target of 193 set by Barisal, in a high-scoring match.
