(West Indies Cricketer)
The only batsman to have ever hit a six off the first ball of a test match, Chris Gayle is the Sachin Tendulkar of the shortest format when it comes in terms of hitting tons. This Jamaican Giant is widely recognized for his huge hitting abilities and has titled his autobiography Six Machine, which aptly suits him. Nicknamed as Universe Boss, Chris Gayle plays international cricket for West Indies and has numerous world records from scoring centuries to hitting maximums.[/vc[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3"]_c[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section el_class=”player-single-wrap”][vc_row msp_template=”player-page”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]table id="customers">

In what is described as a very rare sight, Gayle was involved in a heated argument with Michael Clarke in West Indies’ match against Australia in the Champions Trophy 2006. He was gesturing and screaming animatedly after Windies won.
In 2016, Australian test captain Ian Chappell encouraged Cricket Australia to ban Chris Gayle after his humiliating comment. While being interviewed by Network Ten commentator Mel McLaughlin during
the 2015–16 Big Bash League season, Gayle said “so hopefully we can win this game and we can have a drink after” followed by “Don’t blush, baby.” Melbourne Renegades sanctioned Gayle with a A$10,000 fine for the inappropriate conduct.
It might be a just another game for you, but for me, Cricket is something which I live for. From following cricket teams to keeping an eye on every new update in the cricketing world, I try to deliver the best and true I can in my every writing.
