Watch: When Chris Gayle destroyed Pune Warriors and scored 175 in IPL
Universe boss is the title Christopher Henry Gayle prefers for himself and the fact of the matter is that the big man walks the talk. He has by far been the most destructive batsman in T20 history and like Sachin Tendulkar in both the other formats, Gayle dominates almost every record in the newest form of the game.
When the Jamaican plies his trade in the IPL, he generally takes the tempo a notch higher and has worn the Orange cap twice. Not one to waste his time and energy on singles and doubles, the left-hander believes in plundering the bowlers with disdain. When he gets on a roll, he is like ‘Baahubali’ in a fighting sequence; there is no stopping him.
Perhaps the greatest ever T20 knock came in 2013 when Gayle was playing for RCB against Pune Warriors. The West Indian made an unbeaten 175 which still remains the highest ever individual score in a T20 and propelled his team to an unthinkable total of 263.
