West Indies opener Chris Gayle is all set to play in his 100th Test as West Indies take on New Zealand in the first Test at Jamaica on June 8, 2014. Gayle will be the ninth West Indian to reach the 100-Test milestone. Gayle’s participation though is not confirmed as he is recuperating from a back injury picked up during the ICC World T20. Gayle was felicitated with a special award by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) at the annual awards on June 6, 2014.

In the list of cricketers, Shivnarine Chanderpaul is at the top having played 153 Tests till date and looks all set for few more.
