The Caribbean superstar is an entertainer in the true sense of the term. Chris Gayle has achieved several laurels and accolades to his name. The six-hitting master has been a regular star in the shortest format of the game. However, he has featured in 103 test matches for the West Indies team which may surprise a few. All in all, he has amassed 7000-odd runs to his credit at a stunning average of 42.19.

The man who cherishes to find the fence, deposited six fours in a single over against the three lions back in 2004. Batting first, England posted 470 runs on the scoreboard. In reply, the West Indies team fell like a pack of cards against the ruthless bowling spell of Steve Harmison, bagging six-wicket.

Going in to bat again, as follow-on was enforced upon the Caribbean nation, Gayle did something special which made him earn lavish praises from the fans and experts. In an over bowled by Matthew Hoggard’s, the heavyweight smashed six fours apparently giving spectator’s a limited-over format taste. Hence, from a pull shot to a cracking cut, the veteran batsman showcased his class on a bowling paradise.
