Gayle is second on the highest run-scorers for the Windies in ODIs after Brian Lara, having scored 9,727 runs in 284 matches. He holds the record for the most ODI hundreds by a Windies batsman, having registered 23 hundreds along with 49 half-centuries.

In the previous edition of the World Cup, he became the first Windies batsman to strike a double century, smashing 215 against Zimbabwe in the group game.
