Chris Gayle is currently unbeaten at Bengaluru, making century off just 30 balls, the fastest in IPL ever.
Chris Gayle breaks two world records - fastest century in history (30 balls) & highest T20 score: 175.
This is the 2nd biggest victory in terms of runs in the Indian T20 league. It was a complete one man show though. Gayle's once-in-a-lifetime knock simple blew Pune away. The chase never got going at any point of time.
Chris Gayle 175* (66) 17*6 13*4 [0,0,1,4,4,0,4,4,0,4,1,6,6,4,0,6,6,4,6,1,6,0,6,6,4,6,6,0,1,6,1,0,1,1,0,1,1,0,0,6,1,1,1,1,1,6,4,1,4,6,6,4,6,1,1,0,1,4,1,4,1,1,6,1,1]

Seven games into this tournament, Pune Warriors have already had three captains - Angelo Mathews, Ross Taylor and Aaron Finch (all foreigners).
If not Mathews, who will walk out for the toss in Bangalore? Will they settle on an Indian captain once and for all?
Aaron Finch has three fifties so far which, along with Michael Hussey, is the most by any foreigner.
Virat Kohli needs 39 more for 2000 IPL runs.
All the four fast bowlers are doing well and Zaheer Khan is still not playing. When he comes back, it will be a plus.
