An unbeaten century by opener Chris Gayle guided Barisal Burners to a comfortable 10-wicket victory over Sylhet Royals in the opening match of Bangladesh Premier League T20 tournament in Dhaka on Friday.

Barisal Burners reached their target in only 13.1 overs as Gayle cracked 101 off 44 while his Pakistani opening partner Ahmed Shehzad smashed 56 off 35.

Earlier, Sylhet Royals made a fighting score of 165 losing four wickets depending on two half-centuries by PD Trego (62) and Alok Kapali (56) at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

Barisal Burners bowlers Yasir Arafat captured two wickets while SM Harwood and Suhrawadi Shuvo took one wicket each.

Barisal Burners won the toss and chose to bowl first.

Back to the Gayle innings, it seems like where there is a Twenty20 tournament to be played, there is Chris Gayle to smash a hundred. He scored his fifth Twenty20 century in the past year to take Barisal Burners to an easy win against Sylhet Royals in the opening game of the Bangladesh Premier League. Sylhet’s total of 165 seemed like a competitive one, but Gayle made a mockery of it, smashing 10 sixes and seven fours in his 101 off 44 balls. Barisal were home in 13.1 overs.

Keeping Gayle company was Pakistan’s Ahmed Shehzad, who scored 56 off 35 balls with nine fours and a six. Sylhet’s Australian import, Brad Hogg, could not keep Gayle quiet, and went for 27 in his three overs. Hogg didn’t have it as bad as two other Sylhet overseas players – Peter Trego and Scott Styris went for 23 and 27 in their only overs.

Trego had earlier helped Sylhet recover from a sluggish start to reach a decent total, with his 62. His 105-run partnership with Alok Kapali (56) formed the bulk of Sylhet’s total.
