Here I am going to talk about the record which has been broken by Chris Gayle by hitting the most sixes in cricket history and made a new world record after beating Shahid Afridi. West Indies Chris Gayle became the highest scorer in Batman International Cricket. This achievement was achieved in England's first ODI at Kensington Oval. The match was played and the moment fan started cheering was one of the great moment in Chris Gayle life. Let us talk some more about his world record in the further blog.
Chris Gayle has hit a total of 477 sixes in his cricket carrier in which a total of 276 sixes were for ODI matches, 103 for the T-20 matches and last but not least 98 sixes in test matches. So this is huge for any player in his cricket carrier and I really appreciate this by writing a blog for Chris Gayle. He scored 477 sixes in 444 matches. He has overtaken former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi on this issue. Afridi scored 476 sixes in 524 matches. It will be interesting to know for Cricket fans that all the records that were taken place for hitting most sixes in top 5 performance are from different countries.
Talking about the runs Chris Gayle had scored recently, Gayle was named in the squad for the ODI series against England at the start of this month. There are 24 centuries in ODIs. It is also the highest scorer for the West Indies batsmen. He is in second place after Brian Lara who scored a total of 10405 runs in his cricket carrier and Gayle has scored 9727 runs. India's Rohit Sharma is fifth in the list of the highest sixes. He has scored 349 sixes. New Zealand's Brendon McCullum scored 398 runs and Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya is at fourth place with 352 runs.
There is a piece of disappointing that West Indian opener Chris Gayle has announced retirement from international cricket after the World Cup. So the matches played till July will be his last match and then after no more matches, he will play. So there might see another new record from the different batsman by hitting most sixes. Will Gayle show will be most interesting in his upcoming matches or he will not get into his original performance due to retirement.
Will Gayle able to cross 500 Sixes record before his retirement? Comment below and give your opinion.
