Chris Gayle doesn’t know how it feels to be Ferdi Boer. Neither do AB de Villiers, David Warner, Brendon McCullum, nor Quinton de Kock.

All of those better known players have scored a century in a T20. None of them has yet touched 200.

Boer did in Pretoria on Tuesday, when he swashed and buckled 205 for Boland against Free State, smashing his runs off 78 balls and reaping 180 of them in fours and sixes.
