Chris Gayle smashed many a record with his 147-ball 215 against Zimbabwe – 24-02-2015 NEWS 7 TAMIL Show
Chris Gayle 215 Runs off 147 balls vs Zimbabwe Innings 2015 World Cup vs Zimbabwe




Chris Gayle smashed his way into the record books with a devastating knock of 215 off 147 balls vs Zimbabwe in a Pool B World Cup 2015 fixture on Tuesday. This is the fastest double century in ODIs, beating Virender Sehwag’s knock off 140 balls. Gayle became the fourth batsman – after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma – to score a double century in the history of One-Day Internationals. Gayle has achieved this feat exactly five years after Sachin Tendulkar scored the first-ever ODI double ton vs South Africa in Gwalior.
Gayle’s knock included 9 fours and 16 sixes. This is Gayle’s first three-figures score since June 2013.
After a prolonged lean patch with the bat, Gayle recaptured his menacing form as he sent the Zimbabwean bowlers on a leather hunt. During the course of this knock, Gayle also brought up 9,000 ODI runs.
Gayle had recently come in for a lot of criticism and even the? West Indies Cricket Board president Dave Cameron had created a furor by retweeting a fan who had criticised Gayle’s poor form on twitter. Ahead of this fixture, skipper Jason Holder had said that a big knock from Gayle was always round the corner and the big man repaid his young skipper’s faith.
