Bio

Chris Gayle has been playing one-day international cricket since 1999 and will represent West Indies in his fourth ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015.

A damaging allrounder, Gayle has scored more than 8800 ODI runs and claimed 158 wickets. With 21 centuries, 46 fifties and a five-wicket haul to his name, working out how to restrain the Jamaican will be a priority for other teams during the tournament.

His aggressive style is well suited to limited overs cricket, but Gayle has also had success in the longer form of the game, playing more than 100 Test matches. 

His Test average is 42.18 and he has scored two triple-centuries since hitting the Test scene in March 2000.

Gayle enjoyed success at the 2003, 2007 and 2011 World Cups, including 119 against Kenya in 2003.
