Chris Gayle uses golden bat for Melbourne Renegades BBL 05

CHRIS Gayle is the best T20 cricketer in the world. Chris Gayle is playing in Big Bash League for the Melbourne Renegades. The first match of Chris Gayle in Big Bash league 2015-16 against Brisbane Heat on 19 December 2015. Chris Gayle played with a gold bat, becoming the first man in world cricket to use a willow of that colour.

Former Australian captain and commentator Ricky Ponting held the bat pre-match and couldn’t get over the size of it. “It’s exceptionally heavy. It’s got to be over the three pounds,” Ponting told Channel 10.

And the world-first bat, with a gold colouring infused in the timber and sprayed all over the bat, seemingly had extra golden power during the early stages of Gayle’s innings.

Chris Gayle’s golden cameo was short-lived, out for 23 runs when he mistimed a pull shot from Mark Steketee’s bowling and was caught at deep square-leg by Lendl Simmons.
