Gayle tops Twenty20 run charts for 2012

Gayle tops Twenty20 run charts for 2012

With 1532 runs at an average of 47.87 under his belt, Chris Gayle topped the Twenty20 run making charts for 2012.

Gayle’s magnificent run continued from 2011 and saw him plundering runs in Australia, Bangladesh, India, USA and Sri Lanka.

73 of his runs came in 4 matches of the 2011-12 Big Bash League, 288 in the 2012 Bangladesh Premier League, 733 in the 2012 Indian Premier League, 368 in T20Is for West Indies including 222 in the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka and 70 from 5 matches in the 2012-13 Big Bash League he is currently playing in Australia.

The Jamaican has hit three T20 hundreds in the year, two in the Bangladesh Premier League and his highest score of 128* in the Indian Premier League alongwith thirteen half centuries, 100 fours and 121 sixes. His 1532 runs put him a whopping 374 runs ahead of Azhar Mahmood, the next man on the list with 1158 runs to his name.

His tally could have been much higher had he not missed games in the BPL and most of the Standard Bank Pro 20 Series in South Africa due to a groin injury. On his return to the West Indian side he played a crucial role in their successful 2012 World Twenty20 campaign, scoring 222 runs along the way and popularizing the Gangnam style celebration on field.
