Chris Gayle
Gayle has scored 38 international centuries for the West Indies.

Christopher Henry "Chris" Gayle is a West Indian cricketer who captained the West Indies national cricket team from 2007 to 2010.[1] A left-handed batsman, he has scored centuries (100 or more runs in a single innings) in Test and One Day International (ODI) matches on fifteen and twenty-two occasions respectively. He has also scored century in Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket on one occasion.[2]

Gayle made his Test debut in March 2000 against Zimbabwe, scoring 33 and 0.[3] He made his first Test century the following year, scoring 175 against the same team during the first match of the 2001 series between the teams.[4] Gayle's first double century came in June 2002 against New Zealand when he scored 204 in a man-of-the-match performance in Queen's Park.[5] He scored his first triple century against South Africa at Antigua Recreation Ground in May 2005.[6] His highest score of 333—fourth highest by a West Indian batsman—came against Sri Lanka at the Galle International Stadium in November 2010.[7][n 1] Gayle is one of four players to achieve two triple centuries in Test cricket.[n 2] He has scored centuries against seven different opponents, and has been most successful against New Zealand and South Africa, making three against each of them. He has scored Test centuries at twelve different cricket grounds, including eight at venues outside West Indies.[10][11]

Gayle started his ODI career with a match against India in 1999,[2] and his maiden century in the format came against Kenya at the Simba Union Ground in 2002.[12] His highest score of 215 came during the 2015 Cricket World Cup against Zimbabwe at the Manuka Oval, Canberra. With four scores over 150 in ODIs he is second only to India's Sachin Tendulkar.[13] Gayle has scored ODI centuries at seventeen different cricket grounds. Eighteen of his ODI centuries came at fourteen different venues outside West Indies.[14][15]

Having made his first T20I appearance in February 2006, Gayle scored his solitary century against South Africa in the first match of the 2007 ICC World Twenty20.[16] He was the first player to score a century in T20I matches and one of eleven players to achieve the feat as of 2015.[17] As of 2015, he is fourteenth overall—with Mark Waugh, Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag—among all-time combined century-makers.[18]
