Former West Indies captain and one of the first franchise-league globetrotters and the self-proclaimed ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle is as flamboyant off the field as he is on it. The flamboyant opener gave another account of his love for glam and luxury on Saturday when he unveiled his latest acquisition- a gold ring with his figure inscribed alongside other intricate details associated with the legendary batsman.
The only cricketer to amass 10,000 runs in Twenty20 cricket, Chris Gayle took to Instagram to reveal his newest acquisition. Gayle shared the video of the ring and posted multiple pictures and videos on the social media platform. The ring has a trademark Gayle celebration inscribed on one side while his highest individual score- 333 vs Sri Lanka in 2011- written on the flip side.
Gayle reveals he is targeting the age of 45 as far as playing cricket is concerned
Chris Gayle hasn’t played an international match for the West Indies since the 3rd One-day International against India back in August. Gayle had earlier announced that he would be walking away from the game post the 2019 World Cup. However, as the tournament neared its end, Gayle had a change of heart as he revealed that he still has a lot to offer to the West Indies.
“A lot of people still want (to) see Chris Gayle out there in the middle. I still have that love for the game and that passion for the game as well. And I would love to carry on as long as possible,” Gayle said during a media interaction.
Gayle added, “Even in franchise cricket I am still playing a few games here and there around the globe because I still feel I have a lot to offer. The body is feeling good and I sure I am getting younger as days go on.”
Gayle, who backed out of the ODI series in India the last December, citing that he needed time to ponder on his future, revealed that he is targeting the age of 45, as far as playing cricket is concerned.
“Forty-five is a good number. Yeah, we can target 45. Let’s target 45, that’s a good number.” Gayle concluded.
