World’s famous and one of the most heartthrob West Indies opener on Sunday (Feb 17) has announced his retirement from 50-over international cricket after the World Cup this summer. He will continue playing franchise cricket, with the T20 World Cup in two years´ time potentially on the agenda.
Gayle, during an interview said that he can bow out in style after a 20-year career built on big hitting at the top of the order.”You´re looking at a great man, I´m the greatest player in the world.” He added,”Of course I´m still the ´Universe Boss´. That will never change. I´ll take that to the grave.”
“I´ll let the youngsters have some fun and I can sit back in the party stand and watch them have some fun,” said Gayle. “Winning the World Cup would be a fairytale finish. The youngsters owe it to me to win. They have to do that for me and try and get me the trophy. I´ll be looking to put my input in as well.”
Gayle, who began made his debut in 1999, has also scored a Windies record of 23 ODI hundreds, including the first ever World Cup double century against Zimbabwe four years ago.
