A forcing Jamaican left-hander, Gayle got himself a gloomy stamp on his first oldest visit – to England in 2000 – where the new young men were felt to be inadequately deferential of their older folks. Be that as it may, an absence of regard, for restriction bowlers at any rate, has served Gayle well from that point forward. Tall and forcing at the wrinkle, he cherishes to cut through the spreads off either foot, and can destroy the figures of even the thriftiest of opening bowlers. Also, in this time of Twenty20 cricket, Gayle is the batsman who has flourished like no other.

Among his numerous qualities, maybe the greatest one is his extraordinary dexterity, which enables Gayle to consistently hit even great length conveyances for limits.

And after that there is additionally his lively non-turning offspin, with which he has transformed himself into a certifiable allrounder in restricted overs cricket. His inclination to remain detached on the field at times recommends he isn’t keen on the procedures, yet his casual drew closer was useful for the group at whatever point he drove West Indies. Notwithstanding, West Indies have missed his administrations awfully frequently due his disparities with their board. Amid his outcast, he was a Twenty20 general in different alliances around the globe, engaging group in Australia, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. After a long spell out from universal cricket he returned emphatically in 2012 on the voyage through England and in this way at home against New Zealand.
