The International Cricket Council said Flamboyant West Indies opener Chris Gayle became the first player to hit a six from the first ball of a test match when he launched his big-hit against Bangladesh yesterday.

Gayle smashed debutant Sohag Gazi over long-on, taking 18 from the first over but the 21-year-old off-spinner took revenge by having the opener caught for 24.

The first officially recognised test match commenced on March 15th, 1877 and was contested by England and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
