Cricket West Indies likely to give Chris Gayle a farewell match

The Board is likely to give Gayle an opportunity to play in front of his home ground against Ireland

Moments after Dwayne Bravo announced his retirement from all forms of the game, speculations were thick and fast that the final league match against Australia might also be the last time Chris Gayle dons the national colours. 

However, the 42-year old expressed his desire to retire in front of his home crowd in Jamaica.

The southpaw endured a torrid time with the bat in the iconic event and managed to score 45 runs in five innings at an average of nine. 

"I didn't announce any retirement, but if they actually give me one game in Jamaica to go in front of my home crowd, then I can say, 'hey guys, thank you so much," he said after the recently concluded World Cup. 

Gayle has been one of the legends in the glorious history of West Indies, and the Windies cricket board is open to the idea of giving him a farewell game at Sabina Park. 

In conversation with Cricbuzz, Ricky Skerritt, the president of the Caribbean board, revealed, "We would like to. It is at the idea level. No decision on timing or format has been made. 

The CEO, Johnny Grave, in conversation with a radio station, hinted that the solitary T20I could be the last time we see Chris Gayle in action.

"We're going to play three ODIs against Ireland in the second week of January and then one T20 at Sabina Park, and I think that would, hopefully, if fans are allowed into Sabina Park, a good opportunity for us to say farewell to Chris at his home ground. 

However, there has not been any official confirmation on the same.
