Chris Gayle - The storm
Chris Gayle - The storm

Chris Gayle, the Six Machine as we all call him is widely known for his destructive batting. Though he is known for the T20 format, he is one of only four batsmen to score two triple centuries in Test cricket. You would never see Gayle with fast foot movements neither will you see him trying out new shots but one thing is for sure, you will see the ball sailing over the fence when he starts to bat.

His innings of 175 off 66 balls with 17 sixes for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Pune Warriors in IPL (Indian premier league) speaks volumes about his destructive game. He is one of the most entertaining batsmen on the field the game has ever seen. His approach never faded as he continued to do the same in ODIs. He scored the fastest double century off 138 balls and went on to score 215 off 147 balls against Zimbabwe in 2015 World Cup. The game had never seen batsmen so fearless like this before.
