Chris Gayle has built his reputation as a big hitter. Therefore, there was no surprise when the West Indies batsman equalled Shahid Afridi's record of most number of sixes in international cricket during the third and final ODI against Bangladesh.
 
Bangladesh’s opening batsman Tamim Iqbal scored his 11th ODI hundred and helped his side to score a formidable 301 for 6 in the decider third ODI against West Indies on Saturday before the hosts fell short by 18 runs in the end.
 
Gayle hit five sixes during his 66-ball 73 in the match.
 
In the process, he equalled Afridi’s record of 476 sixes in international cricket.
 
He is now just a six away from breaking the all-time record of most sixes in international cricket.
 
However, Gayle will have to wait further to beat the record as he has been rested from the T201 series against Bangladesh.
