5 best innings of Chris Gayle in IPL

Chris Gayle, also known as the ‘Universe Boss’ is one of the greatest international cricketers of West Indies who is known for his exceptional batting skills and records. He is also one of the most loved batters in India, which is mainly due to the Indian Premiere League, but earlier today, the released players in the IPL mega auction were announced and Chris Gayle was not mentioned anywhere, hence resulting in him not playing in the IPL. So here is a list of 5 best innings of Chris Gayle in Indian Premier League (IPL).
