Chris Gayle confirmed that he will retire from international cricket after home Test series against India in August-September. The dashing Windies batsman, who reversed his decision to retire had announced on February 17 that he would retire from ODI cricket after the World Cup 2019.
While speaking to the media ahead of WC match against India on Thursday, the veteran opening batsman said he has had a change of mind. India will travel to West Indies in August this year for a full-fledged series consisting of three T20Is, three ODIs and two Test matches.
"It's still not the end. I still have a few games to go. Maybe another series to go, as well. Who knows, we will see what happens. My plans after the World Cup? I may play a Test match against India and then I will definitely play the ODIs against India. I won't play the T20s. That's my plan after the World Cup," Gayle said.
Gayle has not had the best of the campaign so far in the ongoing World Cup after having scored just 194 runs in 6 games for Windies in the World Cup.
