Five days, three Rangpur Riders matches, three centuries and crucially two of those tons came from the Universe Boss himself — Chris Gayle. At the end of that stretch and halfway through the Bangladesh Premier League final against the Dhaka Gladiators, Rangpur now stand at the cusp of their first BPL title after Gayle hammered an unbeaten 146 off 69 balls to take the Mashrafe Bin Mortaza-led outfit to a highly challenging 206-1 in the title decider.

Chris Gayle’s unbeaten 146 helps Rangpur Riders throw a big target of 207 against Dhaka Dynamites in the final of the 5th Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) T20 Cricket at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Tuesday.
