Profile

A thrusting Jamaican left-hander, Gayle earned himself a black mark on his first senior tour - to England in 2000 - where the new boys were felt to be insufficiently respectful of their elders. But a lack of respect, for opposition bowlers at least, has served Gayle well since then. Tall and imposing at the crease, he loves to carve through the covers off either foot, and has the ability to decimate the figures of even the thriftiest of opening bowlers. And in this era of Twenty20 cricket, Gayle is the batsman who has thrived like no other.

Timeline
    • September 1999
      An unflattering start
      • Makes his international debut in a series of one-dayers against India and Pakistan in Toronto. Has a horror run in the middle order, reaching double-figures only once in five innings.
    • July 20, 2000
      Ice-cool Gayle
      • Picks up his first Man-of-the-Match award, after bowling a nerveless final over in a one-dayer against England to hand West Indies a three-run victory in Nottingham.
    • February 19, 2001
      Quadruple-century stand
      • Representing Jamaica in a Busta Cup match against West Indies B, Gayle racks up an unbroken 425-run stand for the first wicket with Leon Garrick, the first 400-plus partnership in the region's history.
