Chris Gayle's opinion about victory of West Indies.

The legend of West Indies cricket team Chris Gayle confirmed that the 2019 World Cup would be his last appearance on the largest stage of the sport after West Indies bowed out of the tournament with a 23-run win over Afghanistan in Leeds. Gayle scored only 7 on Thursday before returning to grab Ikram Ali Khil's vital wicket to transform the game in favor of his team.

Gayle was Playing in his 5th World Cup, Gayle informed Star Sports that he would still be playing for West Indies, but the continuing tournament would definitely be his last one, jokingly adding' unless they give me two years of rest and I'm back.'

Gayle said that"We've got a great bunch, it's uplifting West Indies cricket for them. I'm going to be around, I'm going to be around for a few more games, I'm going to be there for the kids. World Cup wasn't going to be there, but life is going on. It's my last World Cup.

He also  scored 1186 runs at a strike rate of 90.53 and an average of 35.93 in 34 innings across 5 World Cups. On the way, he also bludgeoned 49 sixes, 2 centuries (Highest score-215) to go with his part-time off-spin along with 16 wickets. Gayle acknowledged, reflecting on his career, that he really liked representing West Indies but would have' liked to raise the trophy.'

 Gayle is still planning to feature at home against India in the series shortly after the World Cup. "Playing the T20Is and ODIs against India, the CPL and the Canadian T20. That's it. After that, we'll see what's going to happen." 50-over cricket is going to continue, many feel it's too long. We have Andre Russell around, I like Nicholas Pooran, Hetmyer, those boys as batters can be disastrous. They need to mature a little faster, we understand what they're all capable of, "Gayle said, signing off.
