‘Universe Boss’ wants to bat on for another five years

Chris Gayle: 'I still have that love for the game and that passion for the game'

AMBITIONS: Chris Gayle

CHRIS GAYLE has no intention to retire any time soon. The big-hitting West Indies batsman says he wants to carry on playing until he is 45 and he is available for selection for this year’s Twenty20 World Cup.

“I am sure I am getting younger as the days go on,” Gayle said the self styled Universe Boss. “Forty-five is a good number. Let’s target 45. I think that’s a good number.

“A lot of people still want to see Chris Gayle out in the middle. I still have that love for the game and that passion for the game.”

West Indies won the last edition of the Twenty World Cup in 2016 when they beat England in Kolkata.  They will defend their title in Australia in November.

“The door is open for a chance. Let’s see what happens,” Gayle,4, said when asked about selection for the event.

“I have left the option open to hear back from them as well and see if they want the Universe Boss.”
