The Legendary Chris Gayle to Retire
Many News and Rumours were coming out that the Power hitter of the West Indies squad, Chris Gayle, would have his farewell match in the upcoming series against Ireland.
Chris Gayle has been one of the significant, impactful cricketers from the Caribbean Nation. He has represented his respective sides in IPL, BBL, PCL and More. We have seen him play for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL a few years back, scoring runs and hitting massive long sixes in the IPL.
Gayle is one of the most powerful hitters of the cricket ball. He is one of the vital assets of any team he represents “RCB Fans miss Gayle to represent the Bangalore in Red Jersey” “Gayle is currently playing and representing the Kings 11 Punjab in the IPL)
The Chris Gayle is the number one ranked batsman when it comes to hitting the most sixes in International Cricket. “He is at the Top Spot with 1001 Sixes” “The Second is also the Caribbean Player, Kieron Pollard! The Second Ranked with 690 Sixes; he is nowhere near Gayle.”

The Gayle, when asked about his retirement, said, “I Didn’t announce my retirement, but I would love to represent my nations and play in front of my home crowd in my last match” “I thank my fans, and I’ll say Hey, Guys thank you soo much, for being there and always cheering me in bad and good times.”
Chrish Gayle is now thinking a bit to let go of his Cricketing Career and letting the West Indies’ young youths take over the International Side. “Gayle had his time and did his part best for the Squad; now, time to get some new faces and shape them for a better future.”
Gayle also said that I have always enjoyed representing and playing for the West Indies. The big guy had a tough season this year, with not contributing to the T20 world cup in Dubai. His team West Indies was knocked out in the earliest stages of the tournament, and he only managed to get 45 runs in five consecutive innings.
