Jamaican star, Chris Gayle is one of the most entertaining cricketers. Be it his antics off the field or aggressive batting on it, he is someone who draws attention like none else. These days, he is back to playing for West Indies’ senior team. He even made a century in the first ODI against England, which was followed by a fifty in the second ODI.

The 39 years old is set to peak another scale. Gayle has 9,912 runs in ODIs after 281 innings. He needs just 88 runs to reach the landmark of 10,000 ODI runs. Only 13 men cricketers have reached 10K run-mark in ODIs so far. Gayle averages 37.4 and has 24 centuries to go with 50 fifties.

However, Gayle has 9,857 runs for Windies and will need to score 143 runs to score 10K runs for the Caribbean side. Only one batsman from West Indies has scored 10K ODI runs and he is Brian Lara. Gayle is 492 runs away from becoming the highest run-getter for West Indies in 50-overs format. Lara has 10,348 runs to his credit.
