Following Windies' emphatic victory over England in the fifth match of their ongoing One Day International series, part-time batsman and full-time butcher Chris Gayle revealed that he had no idea what format the match was being played in.
"Wait. Fifty overs? This wasn't a T20?” exclaimed Gayle in the dressing room after being told that the match was an ODI. The southpaw smashed 77 off 27 deliveries believing that the team only had 20 overs to chase down England's modest total of 113.

On being asked why he didn't realise that England still had only three fielders outside the inner circle after six overs, the Universe Boss said, "Well, I usually don't notice that. The ball just sails over their heads anyway."
