Chris Gayle 175* (66b), RCB 264 for 3

Chris Gayle can shatter dreams. Ask Ishwar Pandey, the highest wicket-taker in this year's Ranji Trophy who got smashed for 21 in his first over this IPL.

Ask Mitchell Marsh, whose decent run with the ball this IPL was blown out of his memory with first over going for 28.

Ask Aaron Finch, the third captain for Pune Warriors this season who bowled an over hoping to restrict Gayle but didn't bowl again after being blasted for 29.

Ask Ali Murtaza, a specialist left-arm spinner thrown into the deep end in his first game this season to be hammered for 28 in his over.

The fastest hundred in T20 history was built on the misery of others, most notably a struggling franchise whose owners watched shell-shocked at their team's bowlers being taken apart with a ruthlessness only a game of Cricket '97 powered with cheat codes could have matched.
