New Delhi: Chris Gayle continues to scale new peaks in T20 cricket and on Tuesday, he became the first player in the format’s history to cross 14,000 runs. Gayle, 41, refuses to slow down despite his age, and is setting new milestones in the game’s shortest format where he continues to be a hot property for T20 leagues across the globe.
The West Indian legend reached the milestone during the third T20I against Australia in St Lucia in style – a six over wide long-on. He then went on to hit his half-century with West Indies chasing 142 to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
Incidentally, this is Gayle’s first half-century in T20Is since 2016. And he reached there in blazing fashion with a hat-trick of sixes off Aussie spinner Adam Zampa.
He belted 67 off 38 during his stay alongside four fours and seven sixes.
