Gayle to Sign Off from ODIs

Chris Gayle RetirementWest Indies legend Chris Gayle is set to call time on his illustrious one-day international career after the 2019 ICC World Cup in England. The Universe boss, who recently became the first player to play in ten T20 Leagues, made his debut in the 50-over format against India in 1999. He has represented West Indies in 284 matches and is their second highest run-getter with 9727 runs.

“I’m looking to draw the line after the World Cup,” Gayle said. “In 50-over cricket, the World Cup is the end for me. I’ll let the youngsters have some fun, and I can sit back in the party stand and watch them have some fun.”

Gayle's Statistics and Records

The West Indian also spoke of his desire to bring the World Cup trophy back to the Caribbean. West Indies last won the trophy in 1979 under the captaincy of Clive Llyod at Lord’s. The hard-hitting opener, if picked, will be playing in his fifth World Cup.

“Winning the World Cup would be a fairy-tale finish. The youngsters owe it to me to win. They have to do that for me and try and get me the trophy,” he added.

Gayle has been included in the 14-member squad for the first two ODIs against England beginning from February 20th. He boasts an excellent record against England in one-day internationals – scoring 1172 runs in 29 innings at a strike rate of 87.

We would like to wish our Brand Ambassador the best for upcoming matches. Make sure to pick him on your fantasy cricket team for the West Indies-England ODI series and win exciting cash prizes.

Glenn Maxwell was in the limelight, deservingly so, after Stars’ thumping win over Sixers in the final game of the group stage. But if not for Marcus Stoinis’ string of impressive performances it could have been another year of disappointment for the Melbourne outfit. The 29-year-old averages 59 with the bat, the best so far in BBL08, and has taken 14 wickets. Will Stoinis be the x-factor in Hobart?

Seamer Tom Curran, elder brother of Sam Curran, played the pivotal role in Sixers’ thrilling win over Renegades in December. The 23-year-old scored a delightful 23 off 15 balls which lifted his side to a modest total of 132. Curran, later, shined with the ball, taking three wickets to help Sixers claim a 33-run win over the hosts.

‘In bowlers, we trust’ has been Sixers motto in BBL08. The well-balanced bowling attack skittled Renegades and Brisbane Heat out for under 100 and did the season double over defending champions Adelaide Strikers. Sean Abbott, Tom Curran, and Steve O’Keefe have so far claimed 60 wickets between them. And with ace spinner Nathan Lyon back in the squad, Sixers fans could be dreaming of a repeat of the 2011-12 season.

Did You Know?

Sean Abbott and Nathan Lyon took four wickets each against Brisbane Heat in the second semi-final of the BBL06.
