List of Records broken by Chris Gayle and West Indies today against Zimbabwe

List of Records broken by Chris Gayle and West Indies today against Zimbabwe: The 15th match of the ongoing 2015 World cup between West Indies and Zimbabwe has sprung up a fountain of records. The start of the match was pretty interesting as West Indies lost their first wicket of the 2nd ball of the 1st over, that of  Dwayne Smith for a duck. And Chris Gayle survived a LBW decision by using the DRS, which was inconclusive enough for the 3rd umpire to rule it into the favor of the batsman.

But after that, it was a long 49 overs for Zimbabwe because Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels slowly but surely began to decimate the Zimbabwean bowling. Gayle cut lose after making his 100 in 105 balls and that’s when the records started tumbling.
Here is the list of the records that Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels and the West Indies team broke in their innings.

# Chris Gayle scored the first double hundred in World cup history. It is the 5th over all and 1st by a non-Indian batsman. Others to score a double century in ODIs are Sachin Tendulkar (200*), Virender Sehwag (219) and Rohit Sharma (209, 264).
