The self proclaimed ‘Universal Boss’ has now added another milestone in the cricketing record books despite struggling with the bat in the initial stages of the tournament.
For the 37-year-old expectations are always high as he kick-started the season 10 of the IPL needing only 25 runs to complete the milestone. Interestingly, the tall man from Jamaica has already breached the 10,000-run mark in both first-class and limited format of the game.
The one of a kind record is expected to last long as Gayle is currently eyeing a blockbuster of a night, full of explosive batting against the team led by Suresh Raina, who are sitting above rock bottom RCB in the IPL season 10.
