Neither Universe Boss, Chris Gayle, nor his batting style needs an introduction. The 37-year old hard-hitting batsman has revolutionized T20 batting over the last decade. His domination has not been restricted to a particular venue or a particular country, it has been what you call as ‘worldwide’.
Since his inception in international cricket in 1999, there was no doubt regarding Gayle’s potential.

On most occasions, his strike rate used to be on the higher side, especially when compared to players of those times.
However, T20 cricket brought out an even more intimidating batsman out of him. Gayle is popular for hitting sixes and that too some real monstrous ones.
