Chris Gayle tonked the third-highest Twenty20 score in English cricket history at Taunton on Sunday night, including a mammoth 15 sixes.
The match was marked by a rather interesting incident when Gayle smashed a six into Taunton’s River Tone.
Martin Bullock, a Somerset fan at the ground, did not hesitate before diving in the river, swimming to retrieve the ball.
Martin Bullock, of St Austell in Cornwall, described the water as “bloody cold” on Twitter and had Gayle sign the ball following the match.
Gayle who was clearly impressed and tweeted: “Hats off to you champ.”
