MANCHESTER: West Indies opening batsman and the ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle has taken a U-turn from his decision to retire from ODIs after the World Cup.
Gayle, during the press conference, said: “My plans after the World Cup? I may play a Test match against India, but I’ll definitely play the T20s and the ODIs.”
The 39-year-old had previously hinted he could retire from One-day International cricket after the World Cup; meanwhile, he has now reversed his retirement decision.“I’m definitely up there with the greats, without a doubt. Like I say, I enjoy each and every moment playing for West Indies,” Gayle said.
“It’s still not the end. I still have a few games to go. Maybe another series to go. Who knows? We’ll see what happens,” he added.
Beginning his international career under the great Brian Lara, the universe boss said: “I started my career with the likes of Courtney Walsh, Curtly Ambrose, you watch them on TV and you realise they’re in the dressing room, it’s just a bunch of guys.”
Gayle has played 103 Tests, 295 ODIs and 58 T20Is. He made his international debut in September 1999.
