India won the first WT20 Yuvraj Singh became the first batsman to hit six sixes in an over in T20I cricket and Gayle become the first batsman to score T20I hundred.   T20I cricket since then has become a regular feature in every bilateral series and this format influeneced batsman in others formats too. Here is the all time T20I XI.

Chris Gayle: The destructive West Indies opener is key to the Caribbean team’s two WT20 triumph in 2012 and 2016. Gayle is the first batsman who notched up a hundred in T20I cricket. In 2007 inaugural WT20 in South Africa, Gayle hit 55 balls 117 against South Africa which has taken the world by storm. Gayle after that played many innings which left the world wondering how this Jamaica man hit monstrous six .
