The 38-year-old, experienced designated hitter Shoaib Malik is the first Pakistani batsman to score 10,000 runs in T20 cricket.
This masterstroke was accomplished against Balochistan during the National T20 Cup in Rawalpindi while he played for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Shoaib Malik has played 394 T20 matches in the past fifteen years, recording 10027 runs at an average of 37+. Although he is yet to list a hundred in this format, the batsman has scored 61 fifties.
He is now also a part of the elite list which includes Chris Gayle (13296) and Keiron Pollard (10370) of West Indies.
