Chris Gayle celebrates his century during the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup match against Zimbabwe at Manuka Oval.

Cape Town - West Indies opener Chris Gayle sent a firm warning to the Proteas' attack when he scored the highest Cricket World Cup score of 215 against Zimbabwe on Tuesday.

Watch: Gayle scores incredible double-ton!

Gayle scored only the fifth double-century in ODIs and surpassed the previous highest score at the World Cup, held by former Proteas opener Gary Kirsten who scored 188* against the United Arab Emirates in 1996.

The burly opener and Marlon Samuels, who scored a century himself, also set a new partnership record (372) for any ODI wicket, surpassing the 331 shared by India's Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar against New Zealand at Hyderabad (Deccan) in 1999.
