Gayle may wind up being just the sole individual in the 10,000 runs club in T20s for quite a while. No other batsman has crossed the landmark of 8,000 runs in T20s with the second most closest scorer to Gayle being Brendon McCullum (7596).

The 37-year-old Gayle, a standout amongst the most damaging restricted overs batsmen, has not been a member of the West Indies national side since 2016. Gayle has five centuries to his name in the IPL. He has scored a 30-ball century in the IPL and a 12-ball half-century in the Big Bash League. Also, now, he is the first one to score 10,000 T20 runs.
As much as he is adored for his engaging ways – which incorporates hitting sixes and boundaries on field and additionally doing the “Champion” or ‘Gangnam style‘ moves – Gayle has frequently got stuck in an unfortunate situation in view of his ostentatiousness.
Take a look at Gayle and Virat Kohli shaking a leg together.There has been increasing murmurs about his irregularity. Be that as it may, then, for a man who deals in sixers, all it took was one red hot innings to recapture his title as the tormentor-in-chief of the opposition bowlers!
