Chris Gayle is on the threshold of creating three new records in Twenty20 games. He has an aggregate of 8990 runs prior to the start of this game.

Another record he is eyeing in T20 games is most boundary fours. He has scored 695 boundary fours and require five more which would fetch him 700 boundary fours. If he gets them, he would then become the first batsmen ever to score 700 boundary fours.

He has already scored 650 boundary sixes in T20 games. If he gets 700 boundary fours, he would then become the only batsman in the history of T20 games to score 700 boundary fours and 650 boundary sixes.
