West Indies opener Chris Gayle has become the first player to hit a six from the first ball of a Test match when he launched his big-hit against Bangladesh, said the International Cricket Council.

Gayle smashed debutant Sohag Gazi over long-on, taking 18 from the first over but the 21-year-old off-spinner took revenge by having the opener caught for 24, reports the Daily Times. (ANI)
