West Indies hard-hitting batsman Chris Gayle said he will not play any
cricket for this remaining year.
According to details, West Indies are scheduled to tour India to play
three T20Is and as many ODIs, starting from December 6. However, Gayle
said he told selectors that he will not be available for the series as
he wants to take a ‘break’.
“West Indies called me to play ODIs, but I am not going to play. They
(selectors) want me to play with the youngsters but for this year I am
going to take a break,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Gayle as saying.
“I am not going to the Big Bash. I’m not sure what cricket will come
up, I don’t even know how my name reached the BPL,” he said.
