Christopher Henry Gayle is one of the most sought-after strikers in the truncated version of the game. The swashbuckling opener is best known for starting the innings with a bang. A player like Gayle can give nightmares to the world-class bowlers. Gayle is an icon in T20 cricket and his ability to clear the balls out of the park and that too effortlessly makes him the top batsman in this format.

He was at his marauding best when he has hit the most runs in an over in IPL. The 41-year-old thwacked Prasanth Parameswaran in IPL 2011 season when he scored 36 runs in 7-ball over (including a no-ball). The Jamaican-born cricketer also smashed 30 runs in an over off Rahul Sharma’s bowling in IPL 2012 season.
