This week’s Cricket World Player of the Week is Chris Gayle.
Chris Gayle signed off his WINDIES Super50 Cup career in fine style with a typically explosive hundred that set up Jamaica Scorpions for a 33-run victory over Barbados Pride in their Group “B” contest on Saturday.
Gayle announced prior to the start of play that this would be his final match for the Scorpions in this format and survived two reprieves to slam his fourth Super50 career hundred before he returned to play a pivotal role with the ball which tilted the balance and earned him the Player-of-the-Match award.
All but 34 of Gayle’s 122 off 114 balls were in boundaries comprising 10 fours and eight sixes and led a recovery for the Scorpions before they were bowled out for 226 in 47.4 overs, after they were put in to bat.
Although signing off from the Jamaica Scorpions, Chris Gayle #UniverseBoss is still playing and available to the West Indies for the selection for the visit of England to the Caribbean and the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019, in England.
