Universe Boss Chris Gayle has made a big announcement regarding his future, stating that he won’t be playing international cricket again for team West Indies.
Gayle last appeared in international cricket in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 clash against World champions Australia. In the match, all-rounder Dwayne Bravo retired from international cricket, and Gayle didn’t announce his retirement, but many cricket pundits felt that it was the last match of Chris Gayle in international cricket.
Meanwhile, Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Gayle said that he will be present in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which will take place in Australia. The 42-year-old elaborated:
“I will be in Australia one way or the other next year (during the T20 World Cup). I will be there because I haven’t been there in some time.
“The World Cup will be in Australia so I would be there. You know, it might take some extra effort. Sit in the stands, have a cold one and says ‘Hi guys, I’m here. I ain’t leaving. So yeah, I am looking forward to it,” Gayle told ESPNCricinfo.
We Have Something Planned Against Ireland. I Am Just Waiting For The Board To Finalise Things – Chris Gayle
Universe Boss Gayle revealed that he is planning to have a farewell match against Ireland, and he is waiting for confirmation from the board.
“It’s doubtful you will see me playing for West Indies again in international cricket. We have something planned against Ireland. I am just waiting for the board to finalise things. And once we get a date, we would find out what it is. It should be back home in Jamaica, Sabina Park. Final international run so I’m looking forward to it,” he said.
Chris Gayle also labelled himself as a game-changer and explained how he changed the game of cricket.
“I really and truly haven’t sat back and looked at what I have achieved, what I have done within the sport. But I am definitely a game-changer. I have changed the game of cricket, changed the way of how cricket is about having fun. I have changed so many things within the sport.
“Most of them wouldn’t come and say that ‘because of Gayle, we do this and that’. But yeah, I will leave myself with the credit, which I deserve. I am the game-changer. The Universe Boss,” he stated.
