West Indies hard-hitting batsman Chris Gayle became the first batsman in the world to cross 14,000 runs during the third Twenty20 series against Australia at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Ground in St. Lucia recently.
He became the first Twenty20 batsman to achieve that milestone.
He said after the match “it is a great achievement. To score 14,000 Twenty20 runs is fantastic. I may to try and give myself a target to look for 15,000 now. It is very pleasing to be the first person to get 14,000 Twenty20 runs especially on a winning note as well.”
