Gayle Passes 1000 T20 “Maximums” in IPL


Chris Gayle became the first batsman to score 1,000 T20 sixes after passing the milestone during a bruising innings in the IPL.

The 41-year-old West Indian hammered eight sixes, taking his career tally in the format to 1,001, during a knock of 99 from 63 balls for Kings XI Punjab against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi.

Gayle thumped his 1,001st six off Jofra Archer in the final over of Kings XI’s innings, only to then be bowled next delivery by the England paceman as he missed out on a 23rd T20 hundred.
