Chris Gayle

Every Indian players also congratulated Gayle, which led to speculations that the left-handed batsman might just have played his last match for the team from the Caribbean. After the match, Gayle denied such rumors.

Gayle after playing a knock of 72 runs was sent back to the pavilion by pacer Khaleel Ahmed. Upon his dismissal, the left-hander had received a standing ovation from the Trinidad crowd.

Earlier in the match, West Indies had won the toss and opted to bat first. The openers Evin Lewis and Chris Gayle had provided a solid base for the team as they put up a 115-run stand.

Chris Gayle's leadership, charisma and skills will be sorely missed by West Indies cricket and fans across the world.

Against Afghanistan, Chris Gayle was his usual entertaining self, keeping up with the spirit of the game.

Other than captain Jason Holder, Gayle has been one of the voices in West Indies' dressing room.

Over the years, West Indies were very dependent on Gayle, but in the ongoing tournament, other players have taken over the mantle.

Against Afghanistan, Gayle notched the important wicket of Ikram Ali Khil. Khil had made 86-runs.

As a bowler, Gayle has notched two wickets for his team, while he has also registered four catches.

Gayle's highest score in the tournament has been 87.

Gayle has scored 242 runs in nine matches for West Indies in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Gayle has been average in the ongoing global showpiece event.

In his last ever Cricket World Cup match for West Indies, Chris Gayle missed out on breaking Brian Lara's record on becoming the highest WI ODI scorer. He was bowled by Dawlat Zadran for seven runs.

Yeah, it’s time to rejoice, big Chris! Wrongly acc­used in Australia’s Fairfax media (oh, those boorish, lying kangaroos!), including Sydney Morning Herald, of a gross act of sexual harassment, a Sydney court has fin­­­ally ruled in Gayle’s favour. A neat sum of $220,000, as damages, falls into his pocket. Cheerio!

When Shibani Dandekar invited dancers up on the stage at a cricket ratings award, two punters leapt up on to the stage. Chris Gayle, born swinging his bat to the rhythms of Calypso is a natural mover we know. But has Shikhar Dhawan dancing credentials? His wrestling raps on the thighs are ugly, and wedding bhangra moves just won’t do.

Chris Gayle A magnificent striker of the ball, Gayle can change the feel of a match in a few overs. His best has been reserved for the T20 format which he plays around the world, yet with 21 centuries and nearly 9,000 runs, he is a major ODI force.

In His Primary Colours With a name pregnant with stormy possibilities, a batting style that sticks closely to a related sense, Chris Gayle, bludgeoner of bowlers, is 35 and, as we see, is making a spectacle of it. A new, flashy mansion is also on its way, we hear.

No Fixed Captain for Kolkata Knight Riders. Sourav Ganguly has ceased to be the only skipper of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) with the team deciding to try out multiple captaincy in the second season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 tournament starting April 18 in South Africa. KKR coach John Buchanan said that the captaincy would be shared by Ganguly, West Indian Chris Gayle, New Zealand's opener Brendon McCullum and Australian Brad Hodge, an announcement which will disappoint the fans of the former Indian skipper.

West Indies' opener Chris Gayle punches the air after completing his century against South Africa in the second semi-final of the Champions Trophy in Jaipur. The trophy holders rode on the sheer brilliance of centurion Gayle to pull off an upset six-wicket win and stride into the final. The 27-year-old opener made a mockery of the seemingly competitive target with his display of aggressive batting during his unbeaten knock of 133 that came off just 135 balls and contained 17 fours and three sixes. The Caribbeans, who registered their third semi-final victory over the South Africans after wins in the 1998 and 2004 editions, will now meet world champions Australia in the title clash in Mumbai on November 5.
