The West Indian swashbuckling batsman Chris Gayle reached yet another milestone in T20 cricket as he reached a score of 3 in the match between Gujarat Lions and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The West Indian pinch hitter, who is feared by bowlers all over the world, is now the first batsman to score 10,000 runs in T20 cricket. He plays many T20 leagues around the world which is also the reason behind him scoring so many runs. He has been out of form lately but Twitter went crazy as soon as Gayle reached the milestone. Here are some reactions:
The King of "Not-so" good times was certainly pleased…
Congrats Henry Gayle @henrygayle Universe Boss for an incredible 10,000 runs in T20 cricket

Chris Gayle: 10,000 T20 runs. An immense achievement by a colossus of a cricketer. 44.16% have come in sixes; 30.56% in fours. #IPL

Chris Gayle also becomes the first player to score 10,000 runs in all 3 formats – First-Class, List-A and T20 cricket.

Chris Gayle made his ODI debut in 1999, Test debut in 2000 and T20 debut in 2005.
But completes 10,000 runs in T20s first.

Brendon McCullum then took a fantastic catch to dismiss Gayle… but not quite…
Oh Brendon's fucking magic, he wears a magic hat
And when he caught Gayle, he touched the rope with that
