Chris Gayle in recent T20s

Filed under: cricket,sport — ckrao @ 12:26 pm

Chris Gayle has amassed an unbelievable record in Twenty20 cricket. In 105 innings he has scored 3970 runs at an average of 43.62 with 8 hundreds and 26 fifties. Such statistics would be respectable in test cricket and fantastic for one-day internationals. Now consider that he has done this with a strike rate of 155.93 when at most 20 overs per innings are available! His statistics in the last 7 tournaments are even more mind boggling. It’s only a shame he hasn’t played a T20 international since 2010.
