Chris Gayle reveals secrets behind hitting towering sixesJohannesburg: Explosive West Indies opening batsman Chris Gayle marked his 33rd birthday by revealing the secret behind hitting colossal sixes to batsmen during the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup.

“It takes a bit of strength and once the ball is in your slot you go for it. It`s instinct to be honest. You have to let the mind and body flow together. You don`t want to get stuck in a two-minded situation,” Gayle was quoted as saying in statement released by the West Indies Cricket Board.

“You just try and be natural out there and things will actually flow for you in the end,” he added.

Gayle, whose 27 sixes are a tournament record in the World Twenty20, is one of the most feared batsmen in all formats of the game, with a penchant for big hits against both pace and spin.

The Jamaican added: “The key is balance. You have to have good balance to be able to hit a lot of sixes. I pay special emphasis to my balance. You have to realise that bowlers are not always going to make it easy for you.”

“You have to create the shots, so you have to make sure you do it well,” he concluded.

The West Indies, one of the pre-tournament favorites, would play Australia on Saturday in their opening T20 World Cup game.
