West Indies star slams century in BBL

12:57 pm on 24 December 2011

Chris Gayle effortlessly crunched a record-breaking century to lift the Sydney Thunder to a six-wicket win over the Adelaide Strikers in their Big Bash Twenty/20 cricket clash at ANZ Stadium.

Gayle made light work of the Strikers' total of 155 for 8, thumping 11 sixes - the most in a single T20 innings on Australian soil - to finish 100 not out off just 54 balls and wrap up the win for the hosts with nine balls to spare.

The result means the Thunder join Hobart as the only undefeated sides in the BBL, with Gayle's heroics following David Warner's stunning century last week against the Melbourne Stars.
