West Indies cricket team star cricketer Chris Gayle has won three matches against India In the last ODI International match of the series, he hit 72 off 41 balls and also hit five sixes during this innings. This was Gayle's last innings in One Day International cricket and now he will say goodbye to One Day International Cricket with this innings. During this, Gayle missed the former South African captain AB de Villiers by breaking a special record of sixes.
De Villiers holds the record for most ODI sixes in a calendar year. De Villiers hit 58 sixes in 2015, while Gayle has hit 56 sixes this year. If Gayle were to hit three sixes and take root against India, then the record of most ODI sixes in a calendar year would have been recorded in his name. However, in the case of maximum sixes in ODI International cricket, Gayle remained second only.
Shahid Afridi of Pakistan has the most sixes in ODI International cricket. Afridi has hit 351 sixes, while Gayle is second with 331 sixes. At number three is Sanat Jayasuriya, who has 270 sixes in his account. Gayle is just the second batsman in the world to score 300+ sixes in ODIs.
