Shoaib Malik, a Pakistani all-rounder, became just the second player to reach 12,000 T20 runs on Monday. While competing for the Jaffna Kings in the Lanka Premier League (LPL), he accomplished the accomplishment.
He was able to pass the mark thanks to his 35-run inning against the Colombo Stars.
In the T20 format, only Chris Gayle, the “Universe Boss,” has amassed more than 12,000 runs. In his 485th T20 game, Shoaib Malik hit the milestone.
The all-arounder played his first T20I match against England in Bristol in 2006. He was a member of the Pakistani side that won the World Cup in 2009 in England, and he later led the Pakistani team to the T20 World Cup Final in South Africa.
Shoaib remained unbeaten in the final against Sri Lanka at Lords in 2009. He played 124 matches for the national side, amassing 2435 runs and claiming 28 wickets.
