Indian Premier League: Chris Gayle and his amazing records for Royal Challengers Bangalore
Chris Gayle earned the distinction of becoming the first batsman in the history of T20 cricket to score 6000 runs.
Prior to the start of Monday's game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab in Dubai, Gayle's run aggregate read 5992 runs and the Jamaican needed eight more runs for his 6000 runs.
Gayle was bowled by Kings XI pacer Sandeep Sharma after a seven-ball 20 to take his run aggregate to 6012.
Gayle reached the landmark on the third ball of Monday's game when he scored a four off-spinner Glenn Maxwell, who opened the attack for Kings XI Punjab. He had hit a four of the very first ball of this game. It was the second boundary of the third ball of the match which fetched him 6000 T20 runs.
