18 February 2019

OMMCOM NEWS


Jamaica: The West Indies cricket board on Sunday announced that Chris Gayle will retire from One-day Internationals after the ICC Cricket World Cup to be held in England and Wales later this year.

"Gayle made the announcement just ahead of a Windies practice session leading up to the One-Day International series against England at Kensington Oval in Barbados," a statement on Windies cricket official website said.

Gayle, 39, is the second most capped West Indies player with 284 matches and is also the second highest run-scorer with 9,727 runs, behind only Brian Lara - who has 10,405 runs from 299 matches.

Gayle also has the most number of centuries by a West Indian in a 50-over game with 23 to his name.

He also holds the record for the highest score of 215 which he scored in the last edition of the World Cup against Zimbabwe.

Gayle has also picked up 165 wickets.

Earlier this month, Gayle made a return to international cricket after he was named in the ODI squad for the first two matches against England. The dashing left-hander last played an ODI for the West Indies in July 2018 - in a home series against Bangladesh.
