Kohli Congratulates Chris Gayle on Crossing the 10k Mark in T20

Another feather in Chris Gayle’s cap!

Back in the RCB XI only because of AB de Villiers' injury, Chris Gayle ensured the world was reminded of who exactly was the "Universe Boss" when he smashed a 38-ball 77 against Gujarat Lions on Tuesday night.

Coming into the match, Gayle was also just 3 runs short of becoming the first batsman to amass 10,000 T20 runs, and he reached the landmark by nudging Basil Thampi's delivery for a single. The "Universe Boss" then went on to smash five boundaries and seven massive sixes as RCB posted a winning target of 213.

The team won by 21 runs and the tweets celebrating Gayle's feat followed. Here’s what Kohli messaged.
