West Indies has produced great cricketers in the past like Sir Viv Richards, Malcolm Marshall, Brian Lara, Curtly Ambrose, Michael Holding, Courtney Walsh and Sir Garfield Sobers. From Jamaica, 6 ft 3 inches tall and left hand batsman ‘Christopher Henry Gayle’ who is currently the King of T20 cricket format.
Although he is not as patient and not as technical like Brian Lara but he hits the ball so hard and hysterically that even umpires have to remain extra charged when he is batting. This started growing from the time when West Indies cricket board has pulled him out of national team(currently he is in the national side after 14 months) and he started played T20 all around the world like England, South Africa, Australia, Bangladesh and India. He is bought for huge money despite of his tough schedule. He Bats as an opener and making hundreds are like opening a tap of water for him. He in this year IPL season has been a leading run scorer although his team not win the IPL this year, yet he is a great benefit for a team in shorter version of cricket.
Favorites for the World Cup:
His presence along with other good and talented T20 players like Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine and Pollard along with consistent team member Darren Sammy, leading West Indies to won the biggest event of the year-T20World Cup 2012.
One of the Most Controversial Moment of IPL 5 did by Chris Gayle:
Some time hitting balls for sixes not only break the hearts of the fans of opponents but can injured the fans of yours. Chris Gayle hit the ball for a six and accidently hit to a girl but his kindness and humanity that he went to see her in hospital.
Can He break Sachin’s Or Sehwag’s Record what you think?
The way Chris Gayle makes hundreds in T20 and the way his strike rate floats between 175.00 – 200.00, looks like the time is not so far when he scores 200+ runs in ODI’s. Moreover if he do that he has the ability to repeat that, the way Lara has the habit of scoring 200+ in test cricket.
