    Congrats Gayle!! Not many would remember, he also has 2 triple tons in test cricket! He's a legend in his own way.

    He might be stereo-typed as a T20 mercenary, but remember that Gayle also has played 100+ Tests, and in his era (2000 - 2014) his average is superior to fellow openers like Strauss, Gambhir, Vaughan, Gibbs.....

    Chris Gayle achieved 10000+ runs in Twenty20 and not T20Is. (Similar to First-class vs Tests or List A vs ODIs) No doubt it is a great achievement but no need to go gaga over it. There are many such batsmen who never played well for their country but did extremely well in domestic cricket.

    I was in for a SHOCK when yesterday it was announced on LIVE TV that Chris Gayle has made 10000 runs in T20! Who'd have imagined someone scoring 10K in a mini format like T20! I mean I just cannot believe when I heard the news! The maximum that I've heard is 4000 runs by Suresh Raina in IPLs.


    Obviously he is playing more T20s than anyone else - IPL, BBL, CPL, etc. And this is because he is no longer playing for WI (if I am right).


    Chris Gayle, congratulations on becoming the first Legend…the first Great in T20s (irrespective of your standing in Tests and ODIs)!

    Amazing achievement for someone who has admitted that he has a limited range of shots and flawed technique ! Give me that and an awesome hand-eye coordination any day !! Kudos to Superstar Gayle !

    TEST - Don Bradman , ODI -Sachin Tendulkar and T20 - Chris Gayle. My comment is over!

    When Chris Gayle bats, the fielders become spectators and the spectators become fielders, because when on song, the ball keeps disappearing into the stands.
