In the 4th One-day International between West Indies and England, England won the match by 29 runs and takes series lead by 2-1.
On Thursday, Chris Gayle became the second West Indies player to hit the legendary Brian Lara’s famous landmark of scoring 10,000 runs in one-day internationals. Gayle was also the first player to hit 500th international sixes and 300th ODI six.
Chris Gayle gets to a massive milestone in his own way.

Gayle played a memorable knock of 162 runs off 97 deliveries as the Jamaican smashed 11 boundaries and 14 sixes on the way to his mammoth ton. The flamboyant batter on the left struck the right note from the word goes as the Windies tried to chase England’s massive 419 targets.
The ‘Universe Boss’ has now reached the sixth highest in a bilateral ODI series (25), breaking the previous record by the Indian batsman Rohit Sharma, who hit 23 six against Australia in 2013/14.
In a blistering response to Buttler’s 77-ball 150, which was interrupted by 12 sixes and 13 fours, Gayle took only 55 balls to reach his 19th century.
England blasted a 24 sixes world record, scoring 418 in the first innings for six out of 50 after a powerful hit by Alex Hales (82), Eoin Morgan (103) and Jos Buttler (150). Buttler, in particular, caught his eyes as he stormed his 150-run knock in just 77 deliveries while dispatching the Windies bowlers for 12 six and 13 boundaries.
Rashid makes a marvelous four-wickets in just five balls. England defeats West Indies by 29 runs.
Man of the Match: Jos Butler
