Chris Gayle has managed to build a name for himself by becoming the best batsman in the history of T20Is. He has perfect eye-hand coordination, which has always given him the best hit. He is poor on other parts like footwork and technique, but he has always compensated for them with other skills that he is great in. He first showed his amazing batting skill during the T20I World Cup in 2007.
In just two seasons, 2011 and 2012, of playing the Indian Premier League, he became the most respected and feared batsman. During the league, he managed to get hundreds and sixes more than any batsman has ever gotten. In 2013, he beat Pune Warriors with a record of 175 and managed to record the highest individual score, most sixes, and the fastest centuries. In the history of the T20Is, no batter has ever had as much authority as he did.
In the 1015 ODI World Cup against Zimbabwe, Chris broke the record by becoming the first batsman to hit a first ball of the Test series for a six. He, later on, became the fastest double centurion in the ODI matches, where he got 215 off 147. Gayle had an enormous appetite for the T20Is which conflicted with the West Indies Cricket Board each time due to his poor fitness. His appearance has traveled far beyond, and he has developed a passion for T20Is freelancing.
