Gayle can become the highest run-scorer in T20 World Cup
If West Indies captain Kieron Pollard is to be believed, then Chris Gayle can prove to be his big weapon in the T20 World Cup. He can play aggressively and perform well in this T20 World Cup. West Indies have to play their first match in the tournament against England on 23 October. Pollard heaped praise on Gayle’s game and said that whatever he has performed so far cannot be described in words. He can be seen leaving good teams in the current World Cup as well.
Chris Gayle is close to breaking a big record in T20 World Cup. But before we talk about this record of his, it is important to know what the Caribbean captain has said about him. Kieran Pollard said, ‘There are no words for what Gayle has done in the World Cup, T20 World Cup and T20 cricket around the world. The main goal of him and all of us is to win the T20 World Cup. Gayle must also be thinking about the same. We are sure he will do well.
Gayle 97 runs away from the record for most runs
Now let us tell you about the record of Chris Gayle which he can break in this T20 World Cup. Gayle’s record is related to the highest run-scorer in the T20 World Cup. At present, Gayle is at second place in this list. And is just 97 runs behind Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene, who is at number one. The good thing is that Jayawardene is not a part of this T20 World Cup. That is, Gayle has every chance to break that record with his game. Pollard said, “Gayle is just 97 runs away from the record of most runs in the T20 World Cup. But we know he might not be thinking about it.”
This time the IPL 2021 season was not good for both Pollard and Chris Gayle. Both the teams were out of the tournament from the group stage itself. However, in terms of the T20 World Cup, both of them did well to play in IPL 2021, as it got to know the mood of the UAE pitches.
