5 current players who are unnecessarily prolonging their careers

There have been players who’ve done exceedingly well in their careers but they have faded away in the recent past.

Even at 40 years of age, Chris Gayle seems to be dominating attacks in T20 cricket. The explosive opener is still smoking them out of the park at will. But there have been times when he’s struggled to get big scores and that happens for a period of time before he gets his mojo back.

There’s little doubt over Gayle’s ability with the bat and what he brings to the table. However, his fitness and fielding is a liability. Moreover, he hardly features in international cricket. The last time the Universe Boss played for West Indies was against India in the ODIs after the 2019 World Cup. Moreover, he had also announced that it would be his last ODI series.

However, he later said that he would be unavailable until further notice. While he still is a big player in T20 cricket and leagues around the world but he is prolonging his international career unnecessarily.
