Lara’s record finally broken in the Landmark ODI by Chris Gayle

Lara's record finally broken in the Landmark ODI by Chris Gayle

It is Chris Gayle who has broken the West Indies appearance and the ODI run-scoring of Brian Lara. However, he fell cheaply due to the splendid century of the Indian captain Virat Kohli in Port of Spain.

Chris Gayle made the 300th historical match during his 50-over format when he battered the enormous tally of Lara of 10,349 runs. This was at the Queen’s Park Oval last Sunday.

The batsman with 39 years old has received a great standing ovation and he shook Kohli’s hand once he blasted Lara’s record in his own hometown.

Chris Gayle surpassed Lara with five points before he failed for only 11. So he failed with the review when he missed leg due to a wicket bang by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. This has reduced Windies to 45-1 as a revenge to the 279-7 registered in the first match of the series.

Kohli has previously made another great performance when he moved above Ganguly Sourav to become second of the list run-scorers of India ODI. This was after a masterful 120 from 125 balls.

The handsome skipper has struck a total of 20 boundaries divided between six and fourteen. Then Shreyas Iyer struck 71 to allow the tourists winning that toss.

On the other hand, Kohli has made another personal record when he scored 2000 ODI runs versus the same nation. This was in his 34th match against the Windies.
