Chris Gayle smashed his  way or another into the record books with an Devastating Double  century off 138 balls versus Zimbabwe in a Pool B World Cup 2015 Fixtures on Tuesday. This is the quickest twofold ton in One-Day Internationals, beating Virender Sehwag’s record off 140 balls.

Gayle turned into the fourth batsman – after Sachin Tendulkar, Sehwag and Rohit Sharma – to score a twofold century ever. The West Indian demolisher has accomplished this accomplishment precisely five years after Sachin Tendulkar scored the first-ever ODI twofold ton versus South Africa in Gwalior.


The 35-year-old Jamaica left-hander’s innings surpassed the past World Cup best of 188 not out by South Africa’s Gary Kirsten against the United Arab Emirates at Rawalpindi in 1996.

Chris Gayle was was dismissed off the last ball of the West Indies innings, finishing on 215 off 147 balls – the most elevated individual score in World Cups. His swashbuckling thump incorporated 10 fours and a record-leveling 16 sixes. After a delayed lean patch with the bat, the Windies opening batsman recovered his threatening structure as he sent the Zimbabwean bowlers on a cowhide chase. During the course of this knock, Gayle also brought up 9,000 ODI runs.
