Until yesterday, Barbados, the island nation in the Caribbean, used to be known around the world as the place where Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), the “friend of friends” met Joey (Matt LeBlanc), but the “Universe Boss “of the Windies. , Chris Gayle, decided to change that last night when he caused the rain of six on the island against the visiting England cricket team.
WHAT A KNOCK.— ICC (@ICC) February 20, 2019
Chris Gayle makes an incredible return to international cricket, reaching his 24th ODI hundred with a single off of Chris Woakes. It's come from exactly 100 balls.

If ‘Lost Balls’ was a statistic maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC), it would have to be Chris Gayle’s name at the top of the lists.
In a return match of his extremely successful career, the 39-year-old could get his 24th ODI. He scored a total of 135 runs of 129 balls while he had three 4s and 12 thunders 6s to accomplish this feat.
What is more crazy than these numbers is the absolute strength that Gayle continues to command. There are six that only make it beyond the boundary line and then there are the six of ‘Gayle Storm’ that disappear somewhere on the roofs of the stadium or even come out of them. Yesterday, Barbados experienced one of those storms.
During the beating that put the English last night, the sixty of Gayle included a monstrous maximum that traveled by more than 120 meters without finding the ball. However, experts in “finding balls” believe that it may be resting on the decks of a ship docked in the adjacent port.

But that was just one of eight incidents in which the referees had to introduce a new white ball into the game thanks to Chris Gayle.
Gayle looked like a cool hitter at his best during the first ODI between England and the West Indies. After the record of Shahid Afridi for the most number of sixes (476), Gayle obtained the first place in that category when, in the 14th place, Gayle sent another out of the park in a delivery of Moeen Ali.
His new found form has emerged after a couple of days since the athlete had publicly announced he would retire from One-Day International cricket post ICC World Cup 2019.
Although Joe Root and the rest of the English team were able to pursue the total of 360 Windies races to win the first ODI, Gayle’s return to the Caribbean list that way, only a couple of months before the World Cup did not It’s nothing But good news for your team.
In any case, his fans were completely entertained:
