PORT-OF-SPAIN: Chris Gayle has said that he has not yet retired.
Gayle played the third ODI, which India won by six wickets under D/L method, on Wednesday with a special ‘301’ jersey — indicating the number of ODIs he has featured in throughout his career, a record for any cricketer from the West Indies.
After the game, Gayle dismissed suggestions that this was his farewell game.
“I didn’t announce anything…any retirement,” he said in a short video posted by Cricket West Indies when asked whether he has retired from ODI cricket or not, PTI reported.
Asked if he will still be around, he said, “Yeah, until further notice.”
Gayle had earlier announced that the ICC World Cup in the United Kingdom would be his last international assignment, before revealing a change of plans towards the end of the marquee tournament.
