After a sensational performance against England, Windies batting star Chris Gayle has hinted he might reconsider his imminent retirement from One Day International (ODI) cricket. The 39-year-old hardly looked his age as he bludgeoned a six-filled 162 against England in the fourth ODI at the Grenada National Cricket ground.
Combined with a blistering 135 in the first match in Bridgetown and 50 in the second, it seems the veteran batsman has lost none of his ability to dominate bowlers. Earlier this month, Gayle had announced his intention to retire from the ODI format following the 2019 World Cup in England. It seems the recent strong showing has at least prompted the batsman to consider a change of heart.
“I’ve been playing a lot of T20 cricket, so it’s always going to be difficult coming back into 50-over cricket. But eventually, the body gets accustomed to the 50-over format,” Gayle said. “I just have to work on the body, and then maybe you can see a bit more Chris Gayle. Things change quickly. Hopefully, the body can change in the next couple of months and we can see what happens,” he added.
“What’s the matter with the body? I’m nearly 40. But could I un-retire? We’ll see. We’ll take it slowly,” he added. (www.sportsmax.tv)
