4. Chris Gayle (West Indies) – 47.51
No one else owns this format like Chris Gayle class. When Gayle is in form there is no stopping. This guy, in the IPL he has proved it time and again. However, he never found his grip in the IPL until he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chris Gayle hates to leave balls, hates to take singles. All he knows is to entertain, deal the opposition bowlers in boundaries and sixes. But power hitting at an average of 47.51 is something worth to be mentioned. He has scored 2708 runs from 68 matches at an excellent strike rate of 154.57. Teams have a big danger in hands if they don’t get him early. Most of the batsmen in this format struggle to go beyond 50, then there is Christopher Gayle who has had 4 hundreds to his credit. He has a high score of 175*, the day when Pune Warriors bowlers didn’t know where to bowl, why to bowl and what to bowl! He is no.4 in the list.
