Nov 07, 2021
West Indies legend Chris Gayle confirmed he did not announce his retirement after their final T20 World Cup 2021 game on Saturday, denying speculation after he hinted that he was singing off from the sport.
Gayle was given a guard of honour along with Dwayne Bravo, who retired from international cricket on Saturday, and the big-hitting star came up with gestures that led to speculation on social media.
After hitting a 9-ball 15 against Australia in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, Gayle raised his bat and acknowledged the support from the crowd. Even as the West Indies innings was going on, Gayle gave away signed gloves to his fans at the crowd.
In fact, Gayle picked up a wicket in what will be his final World Cup game as he dismissed Mitchell Marsh before running towards the Australia batter and hugging him.
