The “Chris Gayle Match”

Highest Partnerships For Any Wicket

With records tumbling like ninepins, it was easy to forget how close Gayle had come to another one-day failure. Zimbabwe were convinced he was lbw first ball, and the review foundered solely on the rock that is umpire’s call. Had the decision fallen their way, Panyangara would have reduced West Indies to one for two in four balls.

Instead Gayle, who had made one fifty in his 19 previous one-day internationals, accumulated steadily before peppering the stands with some characteristically monstrous hitting. His 215 – then the highest World Cup score, beating Gary Kirsten’s 188 for South Africa against the UAE in 1996 – featured 16 sixes, equaling the ODI record; he and Samuels, relatively sedate in making 133 from 156 balls, put on all of West Indies’ 372 runs, their highest one-day international total, and the highest partnership in ODI cricket.

Chris Gayle quickly accelerated his score, moving from 100 to 150 in just 21 balls. He then reached the milestone of 200 runs, becoming the first non-Indian player to do so in ODIs, following in the footsteps of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma (twice). He achieved this feat in just an additional 12 balls.
