The captain of the West Indies cricket team, Chris Gayle, has made a major declaration about his future plans, declaring that he will no longer play for the national team.
During the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, Gayle last played for the United States against the reigning world champions, Australia. All-rounder Dwayne Bravo retired from international cricket during the match, and although Chris Gayle did not declare his retirement, many cricket pundits believed that it was the final international encounter of Chris Gayle.
When asked by ESPNcricinfo about the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which will be held in Australia, Gayle said that he will be attending. The 42-year-old explained more, saying:
A farewell match against Ireland has been planned by Universe Boss Gayle, and he is awaiting approval from the board.
“It’s quite unlikely that I’ll ever again represent the West Indies in international cricket,” I said. We have an anti-Ireland strategy in the works. All I need now is for the board to complete the process. We’d find out what it is once we got a date. Sabina Park, you should be back in Jamaica. “This is my final international run, so I’m excited,” he remarked.
Another one of the game-changers was Chris Gayle, who described how he did it.
For the most part, I haven’t taken a step back and assessed my accomplishments as a professional. A game-changer, to be sure. I’ve revolutionised the sport of cricket by redefining what it means to have a good time while playing it. I’ve made a lot of changes to the game.
They wouldn’t come and say that ‘we do this and that because of Gayle,’ but there were a few. In any case, I’m going to leave myself the credit that I’m due. This is my moment to shine. That is who I am,” he declared.
