Chris Gayle captured the imagination of the cricketing world with his fearless brand of batting. Before T20 cricket came about, Gayle showcased how to blunt bowling attacks with his clinical stroke play. The 42-year-old has featured regularly in the Indian Premier League for more than a decade now.
The Jamaican was the first batsman in the world to score 14,000 runs in T20 cricket. Out of those 14,000 runs, 4965 runs have come in the IPL at a blistering strike rate of 149. Gayle has received more love and support in the IPL than some of the Indian stars, such has been his dominance in the cash rich league. On the eve of his 43rd birthday, let us take a look at Gayle’s popular nickname and his future in the IPL.
