Chris Gayle may reconsider his decision of retiring after World Cup
London, Mar 1 (IBNS): Despite making announcement that he will be hanging the boots after playing the upcoming World Cup, West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle has announced that he may reconsider his decision to retire after his strong performance in the series against England.
Since making his comeback, Gayle has scored 347 runs at a strike-rate of 120.06 in the four matches.
Gayle struck a brutal 162 in the fourth match against England.
"I've been playing a lot of T20 cricket, so it's always going to be a difficult coming back into 50 over cricket. But eventually the body gets accustomed to the 50-over format,” he was quoted as saying by the ICC website.
"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. 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 said.
Gayle is considered as one of the most celebrated West Indies batsmen in recent times.
