West Indies batter Chris Gayle has ruled out the possibility of his retirement from cricket. After his dismissal in the side’s final game of the ICC T20 World Cup, Gayle received a rousing reception from his teammates and fans and the legendary batter acknowledged the standing ovation with a raised bat.
However, on Thursday, Gayle said he is not leaving.
Gayle, famously known as the ‘Universe Boss’, had stated that he would love to represent his national team in another World Cup.
“I’d love to play one more World Cup. But I don’t think they will allow me. It’s been a phenomenal career. I didn’t announce any retirement but they actually give me one game in Jamaica to go in front of my home crowd, then I can say ‘hey guys, thank you so much.’ Let’s see,” Gayle had said.
Gayle has scored 14,321 runs in 453 T20 matches so far.
