It is not easy to deliver like this on a bouncy track, especially if the players are from subcontinent. Even otherwise, not many can deliver like this. But unfortunately West Indies lost this match by 35 runs. I watched this match live. I remember when Gayle hit a six of Nathan Hauritz, it went way back straight, past the bowler and hit on top of a roof, and the sound heard was similar to that of mangoes falling on tin roof during summer season. Despite many hundreds in all formats by Gayle, West Indies had lost so many matches.
