Chris Gayle will retire from international cricket after the World Cup in England and Wales. The left hand batsman is the only player with over 10,000 runs in the shortest format of the game. Gayle is currently playing for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League and also holds the record for the highest individual score in the cash rich league.
Gayle is one of the most followed cricketers in India and his picture wearing a saffron kurta and tilak with a caption in Hindi has gone viral. “Chris Gayle, better known as Krishna Goyal, star campaigner for BJP, has reached India to campaign for the party in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha polls.”

The news is fake as Gayle has not joined BJP before the Lok Sabha elections. Gayle’s image in saffron kurta and tilak is from an ad shoot for Manyavar in April 2018.
