West Indies superstar Chris Gayle was stunningly overlooked in Sunday's Pakistan Super League (PSL) draft ...

... The 38-year-old Jamaican ... found no takers from among the six franchises, in perhaps the biggest surprise of the auction ...

One franchise owner, who requested anonymity, told Wisden India that Gayle's partial availability for the PSL [b[coupled with his poor form in the last Indian Premier League had made him an unattractive option
...

... we would not have picked him because he is no more the Gayle force he once was ..."

... Gayle has had two unflattering seasons in the PSL, managing only 103 runs from five outings in the 2016 edition and 160 runs from nine innings last year ..."

Chris Gayle gave it the full Universe Boss treatment after striking a world-record 18 sixes to turn the final of the Bangladesh Premier League into an affirmation of his talent.

Asked by ESPNcricinfo if he would class himself as the Don Bradman of T20s, Gayle banged his own publicity drum after another epic display. "I'm the greatest batsman of all time," he pronounced.

Re: Chris Gayle ... meets a new 'Universe Boss'?

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Thu Feb 21, 2019 3:49 pm

"That said, West Indies will rue a raft of dropped catches including four off Roy, with Ashley Nurse so often the guilty party. They may also look back on a first innings that, for all the showmanship from Gayle, also included the 39-year-old eating up an abundance of deliveries before truly finding his rhythm. Roy, by contrast, brought up his seventh ODI century from 65 balls, with a solitary defensive shot."

Jason Roy and Joe Root sink West Indies after Chris Gayle flays England

"It was a measure of the firepower of the West Indies line-up that Gayle’s teammates actually comfortably scored quicker than him, adding 207 in 172 balls while he managed 135 in 129. As England breezed past what they had been set, it raised the question: had Gayle’s early caution actually hampered his side? His century, in even time, had taken 35 balls longer than Roy’s - and, for all their contrasting styles, four deliveries more than Root’s too ..."

Jason Roy and Joe Root centuries negate Chris Gayle's as England beat West Indies in first ODI

"The big Jamaican celebrated three figures by dropping to his haunches in the direction of the dressing-room and then placing his helmet on his bat handle and raising it above his head like a trophy.

The self-styled Universe Boss, whose bedroom at home features a dancing pole and mirrored ceiling, was having the time of his life.

But he scored just 21 runs from his first 50 balls and ultimately that probably cost the Windies."


Roy and Root tons power England to third biggest run chase ever in Barbados

"The package Gayle brings with him is not entirely positive, though. His lack of mobility in the field - really, it's a throwback to Victorian days - is a major problem, while his inability to run does not just reduce his own scoring opportunities. He is unable to take the second or third runs his partners may be capable of making and thus increases the pressure upon them. While he might argue he can compensate for that weakness, he will know the very best ODI players - and you have only to think of the speed of MS Dhoni between the wickets - can both hit sixes and scamper quick ones and twos ...

... There are huge issues inherent in Gayle's approach. If he fails having eaten up a dozen or so overs at the start of the innings, he puts his side at a significant disadvantage in having wasted Powerplay opportunities. Here he didn't hit a boundary until the 15th over of the innings. By the time he was out, he had faced 65 dot balls; the same number of deliveries Roy needed for his hundred. And even if he does come through that tough start, can anyone's acceleration justify the risk of failure or the difficulty in running between the wickets?"

Chris Gayle finds old spark but high-risk approach may cost West Indies
