Cricket fans have urged West Indies batsman Chris Gayle to rain sixes in T20 final against England.

Gayle will be looking to become the first player to crack a century of sixes in T20 internationals, having already smashed a record 98 — 11 of them in the current tournament.

England meanwhile will hope to add to their tally of 34 sixes in the tournament, more than any other team, underlining their transformation into the game’s great entertainers.

Gayle ridiculed for a clumsy bid to chat up an Australian TV reporter in January, has long been their dangerman.

But the 36-year-old, who could be playing in his last major tournament, has failed to notch up a decent score in his last two innings after earlier setting the competition alight with an unbeaten century against England.
