West Indies Chris Gayle sets record World Cup score with 215 against Zimbabwe
Chris Gayle has made the highest ever score at the cricket World Cup, belting 215 before being caught out on the final ball of the innings.
Gayle finished on 215 from 147 balls. He hit 10 fours and sent 16 sixes flying over the straight boundary or into a group of fans dressed as a coven of witches beyond the midwicket boundary. At the other end, unnoticed, Marlon Samuels made his highest ODI score and played second fiddle in a partnership of 372, the highest for any wicket in ODIs.
