Gayle to quit ODI cricket for Windies after World Cup

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Renardo Brown

Having called time on his regional 50 over career, Jamaican Chris Gayle has announced that the upcoming ICC World Cup will be his last 50 over appearance for the West Indies. Just shy of two decades since his 50 over debut for the Windies, Jamaican Chris Gayle has decided to pull-up stumps on a illustrious limited overs career, that has seen him become the region's second highest scorer in ODI cricket.

Since his debut in 1999, the 39 year old left-hander has played 284 ODI matches, scoring 9,727 runs, second only to the legendary Brian Lara among West Indians. Gayle has made 23 ODI centuries, and his 215 against Zimbabwe in 2015 is the fourth highest score in history. He is one of only six men to have scored an ODI double hundred.
