Playing in his 300th ODI match, which is also another Windies record, Gayle took a single off the first ball of the ninth over bowled by Khaleel Ahmed, to overtake Brian Lara (10,348 runs) as the most prolific scorer for the Windies in the format.

The 39-year-old opening batsman was given a standing ovation and a shake of the hand from Virat Kohli when he set the record in Lara's hometown.

Kohli earlier produced another masterclass, moving above Sourav Ganguly into second on the list of leading India ODI run-scorers with a magnificent 120 from 125 balls.
