Kohli, who has represented India (T20Is), Delhi (domestic cricket) and RCB (IPL), needed 66 runs to get to the T20 milestone before the crucial encounter against CSK. Kohli has arguably been the most successful batsman in the Indian Premier League. Despite not being able to land a title with Royal Challengers Bangalore, the skipper of the popular franchise owns quite a few batting records in the T20 league.Kohli’s former RCB teammate Chris Gayle leads the list of highest run-getters in T20 cricket. ‘Universe Boss’ has amassed 14,261 runs in 446 matches at a strike rate of 36.94 with 22 centuries and 87 fifties.Gayle’s national captain Kieron Pollard is second in the list, having scored 11,159 runs in 561 matches with one century and 56 half-centuries to his name. Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik, with 10,808 runs and 66 fifties in 436 games, ranks third in the list. David Warner rounds off the top 4 with 10,017 runs in 304 matches.
