West Indies Christopher Henry Gayle

Plays for West Indies
Age 38 years 37 days
Born September 21, 1979, Kingston, Jamaica
Batting Style Left-hand bat
Bowling Style Right-arm offbreak
A thrusting Jamaican left-hander, Gayle earned himself a black mark on his first senior tour - to England in 2000 - where the new boys were felt to be insufficiently respectful of their elders. But a lack of respect, for opposition bowlers at least, has served Gayle well since then. Tall and imposing at the crease, he loves to carve through the covers off either foot, and has the ability to decimate the figures of even the thriftiest of opening bowlers. And in this era of Twenty20 cricket, Gayle is the batsman who has thrived like no other.
