A blistering century from veteran West Indian batsman Chris Gayle counted for nothing as Vancouver Knight’s Global T20 Canada encounter against Montreal Tigers was abandoned due to rain.

The 39-year-old struck a magnificent 122 as Vancouver powered to 276 for 3 in their turn at the crease.  The big West Indian blasted seven boundaries and an astounding 12 sixes as the team posted the second-highest total in T20 cricket.

Gayle was well supported by opening partner Tobais Visee who scored a quick-fire 51 runs from 19 balls.  South Africa’s Rassie Van der Dussen also got in on the act after smashing 56 from 26 balls.  The Tigers were, however, unable to reply after the game was called off due to persistent rain.  The Knights, who are currently third in the table, were looking for their second win of the campaign having lost their previous encounter.
