Chris Gayle has arguably been among the fiercest hitters of the cricket ball. The Jamaican has enthralled the audience with his swashbuckling brand of cricket in the Indian Premier League. He has represented the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore and has been integral elements of both franchises in the tournament.

Gayle has played 101 games and has smashed 265 sixes, which is recorded as the highest in the T20 league. The Universal Boss also has a strike-rate of 151.20 in the IPL which makes him a brutal force to reckon with in the shortest format of the game.
