Gayle is for T20 (both format) what Sir Vib Richards was for ODIs. It wasn't just their records or abilities that sets then apart, it was the fear they used to put in bowlers mind that defines them alongside their records and abilities offcourse.

And as you can see, he was no slouch in other formats too, specially tests, despite being what people call mindless attacking batsman, he had 2 triple tons, which hasn't been achieved by some many ask time greats too, and actually had better record in Tests than ODI.

What a legend and incredible entertainer. Also as he's not yet retiring from ODIs & T20s, he's going to beat Lara's record for most ODI runs for WI and hope to see some more sixes from him.

Hmm Hope West Indies Board Doesn't Play Any Politics
Its Bcz Of Them That Gayle's International Career Suffered In Last Few Years Or Else His Stats Would Have Been Even Better.

They Want To Safeguard Lara's Record But They Need To Realize That Even If Chandrapaul Would Have Broken His Test Record Or Gayle Breaks His ODI Record He Would Still Remain The Greatest Batsman Of West Indies Cricket!


@Rancho windies cricket board never supportive to lara...otherwise he was sitting on top of the cricketing world....because of board lara forced to take retirement very early.....and gayle just need 12 runs to be leading scorer from wi he could have achieve this against afganistan..then how u says that board is safeguard for Lara

True entertainer. Cricket will miss him. Sports will miss him. He was just awsum. He looked so elegant after playing a six, loved his aura. A smiling face, a blaster who surprisingly has two 300s in Test, was fit for every format. We will miss you Christopher Henry Gayle (bow)

An underrated batsman, with very solid records in all formats of the game. I feel WICB did not handle him well at all or else his test career would have been even better than what his stats show. At his best, he's the most destructive player of his generation.

Thank you for what ? He has consumed hours of our time which channels use it to spread capitalist propaganda who in return sponsors the cricket board and players ..why the fcuk is this Kamala pasand trying to feed us Cancerous Gutkha while singing patriotic jingles like..ek aur baar..lehrayenge jhanda ek aur baar ?

gayle dhoni and afridi , most overrated players i have seen in cricket

by Location Manager (6.3k points)

lol what ??? What did you just say??


How is Gayle overrated?


Afridi Has Been Very Successful In Limited Overs (T20 And ODI) In Test Ofcourse He Wasn't Successful But Cant Call Him Overrated Bcz He Is Not Even Rated In Tests!

Gayle Has Been Very Successful In All 3 Formats Specially ODI.
Dhoni Has Been Very Successful In Limited Overs (T20 And ODI) Specially ODI Where He Is Among All Time Greats. Even In Test He Has Been Successful, Among The Most Successful Wicketkeeper Batsman Of All Time.

So I Don't Understand On What Basis You Called Them Overrated!


Afridi I can somewhat agree......gayle and Dhoni? No way.


none of them overrated and certainly not gayle .......statistic don't justify his talent...he never care
about his can say he is laziest and careless and not utilized the opportunity otherwise number would have been different...on his day he can demolish any attack in the world....he never struggles for run....scoring twice 300 in test is not that easy....not achieved by test batman like sachin dravid ponting kallis, lakshman etc......


all these three guys combined have more fan following than rest of 3000 combbined.......
since these guys are only talking about gayle...lets see about afridi...since you all know about dhoni....

afridi back in the day had 4 fastest centuries among top ten..... alone.
he was youngest to score a century..... he has most sixes in odis ..... he was 5th highest wicket taker of all time.... he was the only player to take close to 400 wickets and 8000 plus runs in odis.... none of other big names come close..... and many many more records..which he alone commands....

and he was doinng all that when boundaries were 80-100 plus meters.... now they are starting from 59 meters on flat pitches....

afridi revolutionized modern day cricket....gayle upped it....


Afridi is the true father of t20. The kind of fear he put in opposition will never be replaced by anyone else...once 220 was a match winning even 350 isn't safe. Cricket has changed a lot...nowadays its favour mostly batting ..afridi is the king of hard hitting who wave his flag when it was bowlers era...


Add with grand nova...he is the greatest match winner of Pakistan..he has most mom award from Pakistan..overall 4th in cricket. Most mom in t20. Aftidi is his nations hero..not just a league hero.
And definitely aftidi is one of three most popular cricketers in matter who are others two.


when you make hero of a slogger like afridi over saeed anwar and mohd yusuf then it shows where the cricket is heading in your nation
no wonder pak is struggling to beat even afghanistan amd bangladesh

btw i dont remember in last 5 years dhoni winning a match for india or gayle . any non subcontinent teams wont even have these 2 in their b team


Creepy, MS has gone downhill since 2015, check his numbers before that and you will find he was fantastic.


creepy......afridi has won many matches for pakistan.....his 35 in 18 ball in winning cause is better than scoring 75 in 100 that stop winning the game...for statistic lover or critics he may not be better player but he was big asset for team and his country....especially in odi and t20....because he was not only good pinch hitter but also very good bowler...same for M.S.


yaa sure performing once in a blue moon


Aftidi isn't artist...he is a warrior. A gladiator. Nobody wants art in cricket...everybody wants to win and general people want entertainment...and afridi provided them successfully...that's why he is greatest match winner of his country. Most man of the match in both ODI and t20. And one of most popular cricketer in the world..all successful people has lots of haters. We get it.


@creepy in my lifetime i saw Pakistan winning one world cup and that's t20 world cup. And afridi is the man of match in both semi final and final.
He was the man of the tournament in previous t20 world cup also where Pakistan just lost world cup due to misbahs childish mistakes..if afridi was there Pakistan would have won two consecutive world cup...what can u ask more???? And don't prove yourself cricket pundit...pseudo intellectual...bash afirdi, call him slogger and become a cricket pundit...that doesn't work anymore. Grow up...
