New Delhi: Sun Risers Hyderabad may not be doing well in the IPL, but its captain has achieved a big achievement. Sun Risers captain and Australian batsman David Warner has become the fourth batsman in the world to score 10,000 runs in T20 cricket.
He achieved this feat in the 15th over of the match played against CSK on Wednesday. Warner has joined the 10,000 club by scoring 10,017 runs in T20. Chris Gayle has scored the most 13,839 runs in T20 cricket.
In second place is Kieron Pollard, who has scored 10,694 runs. Pakistani batsman Shoaib Malik has scored 10,488 runs. Warner has also hit 50 FIFT in the IPL. Warner has 5447 runs in the IPL.
New Zealand batsman Brandon McCullum has scored 9922 runs in T20. At the same time, Virat Kohli is just 106 runs behind from coming to this club. Kohli has scored 9894 runs. Recently Virat has made a record of scoring 6 thousand runs in IPL.
How did Warner come to this club before Virat?
Talking about T20 International, Virat Kohli is at the top in this. Virat has scored 3159 runs in 90 matches. While Warner is in eighth place, he has scored 2265 runs in 81 matches. Virat has played 310 matches so far, while Warner has played 304 matches. That is, Virat is on top in both IPL and T20 International, so how did Warner complete 10,000 runs before Virat?
The answer is that in fact, apart from IPL and T20 International, Warner also plays many other T20 leagues. He has played for Australia, Australia A, Delhi Daredevils, Darham, Middlesex, New South Wales, Northern Districts, St Lucia Stars, Sun Risers Hyderabad, Sydney Sixers, Sydney Thunder and Sillette Sixers.
Apart from the IPL, he has also performed well in other leagues. While Virat has played for Delhi, India and Royal Challengers. Other Indian players, including Virat, do not play for foreign T20 leagues. BCCI rules do not allow players in other leagues. However, if seen in this way, Virat Kohli has scored almost 10,000 runs only while playing for Indian T20 and India, which is a big achievement in itself.
