ICC World T20 - England vs West Indies - Stats highlights

The mighty Gaylestorm erupted at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and ravaged the England side apart with sheer ease. Chasing a healthy target of 183, West Indies never found any difficulties in going about their job. From the chasing perspective, it was the Chris Gayle show, as the Jamaican slammed his second T20I century. Gayle had a ball in the middle as he hit as many as 11 sixes.

Earlier, England started off in style after they were put into bat by the West Indies. Alex Hales and Jason Roy got them off to a solid start, before the elegance of Joe Root attracted all the attention. England however, did not get to the 200 mark, as at one point in the innings, it seemed that Eoin Morgan’s side would get to a total in excess of 200.

West Indies did not have the best of starts as Johnson Charles was trapped LBW by David Willey in the very first over of the chase. The second wicket stand between Marlon Samuels and Chris Gayle set the foundation for West Indies’ victory as Samuels accelerated while Gayle remained around. After Samuels was dismissed, Gayle went berserk and it was just a matter of time before the formalities were wrapped up. His massive sixes set the Wankhede Stadium on fire as the crowd went gaga.

Below, are the statistical highlights for the game between England and West Indies.

11. Gayle hit 11 sixes in his knock of 100* and that is the third most number of sixes in an innings in T20I.

208.33. Chris Gayle’s strike rate in this innings was his best for an innings where he has scored above 50.

98*. Chris Gayle became the leading six hitter in T20I’s, edging past the recently retired Brendon McCullum.

12. This was the 12th instance when Chris Gayle hit 10 or more sixes in a T20I.

10. England bowled as many as 10 wides, a major cause for their wayward bowling.

730. Joe Root has scored 730 runs in international cricket in 2016.
