Chris Gayle seems to be getting better with age, says Jason Holder

first_imgWest Indies skipper Jason Holder was all praise for Chris Gayle, whose titanic century was not enough to take the team home against England in the fourth one day international in Grenada on Wednesday.Chris Gayle continued with his sensational form as he smashed his second hundred in three innings. Gayle blasted 162 off just 97 balls aat the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada. But his blazing knock was not enough as West Indies were bowled out for 389 in 48 overs, falling short of the target by 29 runs.Gayle, who will retire from ODIs after the World Cup in England and Wales, hit 14 sixes to take his tally of sixes to 305 in ODIs and 506 in international cricket.West Indies captain Jason Holder said his team’s batting attitude had been “not to die wondering”.”We knew what run rate we had to keep up with and it was just a matter for us to just keep going and be fearless,” he said, paying tribute to 39-year-old Gayle.Gayle also completed 10,000 runs in ODIs and became only the second West Indian after Brian Lara (10,405 runs) to achieve the milestone.Gayle (10,074 runs) became the 14th cricketer to achieve the feat after Sachin Tendulkar (18,426), Kumar Sangakkara (14,234), Ricky Ponting (13,704), Sanath Jayasuriya (13,430), Mahela Jayawardene (12,650), Inzamam-ul-Haq (11,739), Jacques Kallis (11,579), Sourav Ganguly (11,363), Rahul Dravid (10,889), Virat Kohli (10,533), MS Dhoni (10,415), Lara (10,405) and Tillakaratne Dilshan (10,290).”To get 10,000 runs in any format of cricket is a great achievement. It’s unfortunate he has announced his retirement [because] he seems to be getting better with age,” Holder added.advertisementEngland’s middle-order batsman Jos Buttler hit a career-best 150 while skipper Eoin Morgan smashed 103 to power their team to 418 for 6. Buttler sensational knock was laced with 12 sixes, making him the first batsman from England to hit 12 sixes in an ODI innings.Buttler, was named man-of-the-match, was completely in awe of Gayle.”It just goes to show, no matter who’s favourites, on any given day there will be unbelievable games of cricket, and if Chris Gayle is in the opposition, you can lose those games,” Buttler told Sky Sports.”I’ve probably never seen anyone hit sixes as easy as he can. He’s a legend of the game.”The fifth and final match of the series will be played on Saturday in St Lucia, before the two teams face-off in a three-match Twenty20 International series.Also Watch:last_img read more

Shaun King Provides Backstory For Winston Crab Legs Photo, Blasts People Criticizing The QB

first_imgShaun King clarifies James Winston and the crab legs story.Shaun King Crab LegsThursday night, former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, posted an Instagram photo of himself celebrating his No. 1 selection in the NFL Draft with a plate full of crab legs. Normally, such a photo wouldn’t be newsworthy – but given the fact that Winston was caught shoplifting crab legs from a Tallahassee Publix last April, it didn’t go unnoticed. Winston, who was criticized heavily for the post, eventually took it down, reportedly at the request of his new employer.Former NFL quarterback Shaun King, who is dialed into the football scene in northern Florida, has provided a bit of backstory on the photo Friday morning. He says that the crab legs were a gift from Captain Keith Colburn of The Deadliest Catch after Winston helped auction off a king crab at Mike Alstott’s charity auction earlier this year. He’s blasting people who have been critical of Winston.If people only knew how STUPID they sound killing this kid over that picture smdh— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015I was seated at the table right next to jameis at the mike alstott charity auction, when captain keith asked jameis to help him auction off— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015This huge king crab he had flown in for the event. Captain keith is from the deadliest catch show. I wasnt sure how jameis was gonna— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Handle the request, but it didnt faze the young man at all he simply said ok sure, we r here to help the alstott foundation right.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015That same captain keith in a gesture of thanks sent jameis and his family 25lbs of king crabs legs for his draft event last night.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Thats the backstory behind last nights picture for those of you who need to seriously have some self evaluation done— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015While the backstory may be a bit more heartwarming than many would have guessed, Winston likely still knew the reaction he’d get for the post. Whether it was worth it – well, that’s a question that the new Buccaneers quarterback can answer.last_img read more
