Two-time world champion West Indies had a very disappointing start in the T20 World Cup being played in UAE and Oman, where the team lost their first match against England by six wickets. The team lost this match in the ninth over, but Chris Gayle, the most senior and explosive batsman of the team, has recorded a special record in his name. Gayle now holds the record for taking 100 catches in T20 Internationals and has become the first cricketer in the world to do so.

T20 World Cup: Before the great match, there was a wonderful friendship between the players of India and Pakistan, they were seen going to the field together for training.

Gayle made this record by catching the catch of England opener Jason Roy. In this match, England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to bowl first and later his decision proved to be correct. West Indies’ innings was bundled out for just 55 runs in 14.2 overs on the basis of 4 wickets from Adil Rashid. Surprisingly, Gayle scored only 13 runs for the team with the help of three fours, but later this run became the team’s highest score.
