THE race is on between Ben Gunn and Andrew Chalkley to be the first player to reach 1000 Twenty20 runs in the Bendigo District Cricket Association.

After 10 seasons of the T20 format, Gunn (920) and Chalkley (906) head the list for the most runs scored, with the pair well out in front of the rest of the field.

Kangaroo Flat’s Brent Hamblin is third on the list with 811 runs, while Strathfieldsaye’s Greg Lyon (702) is the only other player with more than 700.

It’s no surprise to see Gunn at the top of the list given not only is he one of the elite batsmen in the competition, but his 39 Twenty20 innings are the most of any player.

Gunn’s 920 runs have been spread across three clubs – Strathfieldsaye (618), Bendigo United (267) and Golden Square (35).

SWASHBLUCKLING: Andrew Chalkley made in Strathdale-Maristians' grand final win over Bendigo in 2015-16. Chalkley has two T20 centuries.

Chalkley – the only player with two T20 centuries – has spent the past six seasons as a Twenty20 marquee player, the bulk of which has been with Strathdale-Maristians, with one-season stints at Eaglehawk and Sandhurst.

Bendigo marquee player James Seymour has the most T20 scores of more than 50 with seven.
