Chris Gayle

One of the all-time cricketing greats, Christopher Henry Gayle has smashed many a bowling attack and record to smithereens in an extraordinary career. He is one of only four batsmen to score two triple centuries in Tests, the others being Sir Don Bradman, Brian Lara and Virender Sehwag. His destructive batting for the West Indies at the top of the order made him the Player of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2006. Nine years later, he became the first batsman to score an ODI double hundred in the World Cup with an innings of 215 against Zimbabwe at Canberra in the ICC CWC 2015. His exploits in the shortest version of the game have prompted many to christen Chris as the greatest Twenty20 batsman ever. He has scored as many as twenty centuries at different levels in this format, including two for the West Indies and five for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. His unbeaten 175 off sixty-six balls for RCB against Pune Warriors in the 2013 season of the IPL was the fastest century in any format of cricket (thirty balls), the highest individual score in a T20 match, and the most sixes scored in a single innings in the IPL. He is also the first batsman to achieve the tally of a hundred sixes in T20 cricket. The IPL apart, he has distinguished himself in T20 leagues and tournaments across the world.
