Chris Gayle

West Indies batting maestro Chris Gayle stands atop the pinnacle of T20 cricket, holding the record for the most runs in the format. Nicknamed the ‘Universal Boss,’ Gayle has amassed a staggering 14,562 runs in 463 T20 matches, representing an astonishing 28 different teams across various leagues worldwide. His T20 journey commenced in 2005, and since then, he has been a dominant force, unleashing 22 centuries and 88 half-centuries.

Gayle’s remarkable feat extends beyond runs; he is the only player to have surpassed the milestone of 1000 sixes in T20 cricket, tallying an astonishing 1056 maximums. His incredible strike rate of 144.75 underscores his aggressive style of play, epitomized by his monumental innings of 175 not out off just 66 balls while playing for Team Bangalore in the 2013 Indian T20 League.

Gayle’s ferocious knock, embellished with 13 fours and 17 sixes, propelled Bangalore to a record-breaking total of 263/5, the highest in the history of the Indian T20 League.
