Bangalore: After his breathtaking 66-ball 175 in the Indian Premier League here today, Chris Gayle was modesty personified, preferring to highlight the contributions of his team-mates whose efforts paled in comparison to the Jamaican's record-breaking feat.

"(Tillakaratne) Dilshan and A B (de Villiers) supported us really well. It was a breathtaking game and happy to be on the winning side. The bowlers finished things on a high," Gayle said after smashing his way into the record books with a 30-ball century, the fastest in T-20 cricket.

"I am really happy with the win from the team point of view. It puts us on top of the table. It is one of the days when you come out and things go according to you," he told reporters at the post-match press conference after Bangalore's record 130-run win over Pune Warriors.
