Here is how fans reacted:
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, when the world has come to a standstill, ICC has kept its fans engaged with their delectable throwbacks.
Gayle is one of the most feared batsman in the game for his explosive style of batting. The Windies opener was recently in Bangladesh for the Bangladesh Premier League where he told reporters about crowds still wanting to see him and that is the reason why he is still not contemplating retirement and said he would like to continue for as long as he can.
“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. I would love to carry on as long as possible in T20 and franchise cricket as well,” Gayle had told reporters in Bangladesh.
