West Indies left-handed opening batsman Chris Gayle signed off his closing One Day World (ODI) within the Caribbean with a file half-century within the 5th and ultimate fit in opposition to England on the Darren Sammy Nationwide Cricket Stadium in Saint Lucia on Saturday.
Chasing a paltry 113, Gayle spark off from the get-go putting 3 fours within the first over bowled through Chris Woakes after which went directly to plunder 23 runs within the 3rd over — off Woakes — that integrated 3 sixes. And this used to be in spite of claiming to have walked out with the flawed bat as he made his method against the pitch.
He ultimately reached his fifty off simply 19 balls and turned into the quickest West Indian to succeed in the milestone, surpassing Darren Sammy’s benchmark through a supply. Gayle, slated to play for Kings XI Punjab within the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), milked 26 runs off 5 balls from Mark Picket sooner than his off stump used to be uprooted within the closing ball of the over. Alternatively, until then an emphatic victory for the hosts had already been all-but secured.
Gayle departed after scoring 77 runs off simply 27 balls, with five fours and nine massive sixes that accounted for 74 runs in barriers by myself.
