The veteran batsman from West Indies Chris Gayle is one of the most devastating batters the world cricket has ever witnessed. His ability to murder bowling units make him a rare talent. Gayle will be eager to continue his good run in the upcoming IPL and recently revealed how many innings will he take to reach an IPL hundred.
The Universe Boss, as he is widely known, is a flagbearer of many T20 and IPL records. With six centuries under his belt, Chris Gayle has the most number of it in IPL history. As far as runs go, the southpaw has 4484 runs, which makes him the fifth-highest run-getter and Gayle’s 326 sixes are the highest in history.

Gayle’s 175 is still the highest score in the history of IPL and also in the history of T20 cricket. He has bagged the Orange Cap in 2011 and 2012; however, failed to lead Bangalore to the title.
The 40-year-old will turn up for Kings XI Punjab this time around. He will pair up with skipper KL Rahul as they chase their maiden trophy. Punjab, on their official Twitter handle, predicted how many seconds Chris Gayle will set and asked the fans how many innings he will take to reach IPL hundred.
As the Kings XI Punjab’s official Twitter handle posted the question, Chris Gayle himself chose to answer the question. The giant batsman said that it will only take him one innings to reach an IPL hundred.

Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab will desperately want Chris Gayle to fire as they strive for their maiden trophy. They have completely revamped their support staff appointing Anil Kumble at the helm of things. On the other hand, KL Rahul will lead for the first time when the tournament commences on September 19 in the UAE.
