New Delhi. A strange incident happened during the match between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Guyana Amazon Warriors in the semi-final match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021. Batting first, Guyana set a target of 179 runs to win in front of St Kitts. Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis came out to open the innings for St Kitts. In the fourth over of the match, Guyana’s fast bowler Odean Smith broke Gayle’s bat. However, Universal boss Gayle took his revenge in the same over.
Chasing the target, the pair of Gayle and Lewis had scored just 19 runs in the first three overs. Smith brought the innings to bowl the fourth over. Smith started the over with a wide ball. After this, Gayle hit a four on the first ball. Smith took revenge for this and broke Gayle’s bat on the second ball. As soon as the bat broke, the color of Gayle’s batting also changed and he forcibly smashed Smith. 18 runs (4, 4, 6, 4) came off Gayle’s bat on the last four balls of the over.
