Gayle breaks girl’s nose after hitting six

NEW DELHI, India, April 18 – West Indies batsman Chris Gayle Wednesday visited a female spectator who suffered a broken nose after being hit by one of his sixes as she watched from the stands at an Indian Premier League match.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore opener smashed eight sixes, including five in a row off leg-spinner Rahul Sharma, during an explosive innings that helped his team beat the Pune Warriors on Tuesday evening.

Gayle said on Twitter that after learning one of his strikes had hit the fan, named only as Tia, and broken her nose he decided to go and visit her.

“Her 1st word to me is to Chill, She’s fine!” he wrote.

The left-handed opener, who was named man of the match, cracked a 48-ball 81 in a magnificent display of power-hitting to help Bangalore surpass Pune’s challenging total of 182 with six wickets to spare in a last-ball finish.

The 76-match tournament has nine teams playing each other on a home-and-away basis before the top four sides qualify for the play-offs. The final will be played on May 27.

Pune now have six points and Bangalore four after five matches.
