He appeared in 31 matches and ended up scoring 1016 runs at a strike rate of 134.74 with 1 century and 6 half-centuries. In a real sense, he seems to be the only batsman in the world championship to have scored over 1000 runs. Chris Gayle comes in second with 920 runs from 28 games.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli and West Indian superstar Chris Gayle retain the combined history for most 50-plus scores.
