Chris Gayle has become the first man to hit 10,000 runs in Twenty20 cricket
Chris Gayle became the first man to hit 10,000 runs in Twenty20 cricket as he helped Royal Challengers Bangalore to victory over Gujarat Lions.
The West Indian began the match on 9,997 runs and reached five figures in less than spectacular fashion with three singles. He was eventually dismissed for lbw after 77 in 38 balls.
Alongside a 64-run showing from Virat Kohli, RCB set a total of 213 which Lions failed to match – falling 21 runs short.
Brendon McCullum hit an impressive 72 in the chase, but Yuzvendra Chahal’s three wickets – dismissing McCullum, Dwayne Smith and Suresh Raina – dealt a real blow to Gujarat’s hopes.
