Gayle becomes first to 10,000 Twenty20 runs

BBC:-West Indies batsman Chris Gayle became the first player to reach 10,000 Twenty20 runs as Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League.

Gayle has scored 7,534 runs in fours and sixes in his domestic T20 career, making 18 centuries and 61 fifties.

The 37-year-old smashed five boundaries and seven sixes against Gujarat, making 77 as RCB finished on 213-2.

Brendon McCullum made 72 in response as Gujarat slipped to a 21-run loss.

Gayle has played domestic T20 cricket around the world, which has included stints with Somerset and Worcestershire.

“People are still looking out for Chris Gayle,” he said. “The Universe Boss is still here and still alive.

“It was great fun. I wanted this so badly, but first of all to get 10,000 runs, it was actually on my mind, so I’m glad to get that sort of achievement.

“It’s a privilege to actually be the first person to get there.”
