Rizwan breaks Gayle’s record; scores most runs in T20s in a calendar year

SHARJAH: Pakistan’s wicketkeeping batter Mohammad Rizwan has surpassed Chris Gayle for most runs in T20 cricket in a calendar year here on Sunday.

Rizwan has gone past Gayle who held the record for five years with 1665 runs in T20 cricket. He made the record in 2015 in 36 games. Rizwan has now gone past him, albeit having played five games more.

Rizwan has been in sublime form of late, having scored five 100+ opening partnerships with Pakistan captain Babar Azam this year so far.
