Chris Gayle's economy rate in one-day internationals

A bowler's economy rate is the average number of runs they concede in an over. Chris Gayle's is currently 4.60 in one-dayers.

What's considered a 'good' economy rate for one-day internationals has increased over the years as batting totals have climbed. We're fairly certain that 4.60 is all right. It's not out of this world.

The reason we're mentioning this is because Chris Gayle took 2-23 off ten overs yesterday. Nobody gets figures like that any more, against Ireland or anybody.

This has done much to offset Chris's middling batting form so far this World Cup, so we're not lying about him being one to watch... [Sighs, knowing no-one's really buying these excuses.]
