Chris Gayle

Full name Christopher Henry Gayle

Born September 21, 1979, Kingston, Jamaica

Current age 26 years

Major teams West Indies, ICC World XI, Jamaica

Batting style Left-hand bat

Bowling style Right-arm offbreak

Gayle is one of the stronger players of the West Indies cricket team. He loves to make his way out either foot and has the ability to overdrive the figures of even the thriftiest of opening bowlers. Gayle’s aggressive approach has become an attacking weapon in its own right. His 79-ball century at Cape Town in January 2004, on the back of a South African first innings of 532, was typical of his no-holds-barred approach. His career’s best came with 317 against South Africa in Antigua. He now bowls in the non-turning offspin and with which he has turned himself into a genuine one day all rounder.
