Caribbean superstar Chris Gayle has contradicted of his earlier retirement scheme from international cricket; besides that, the 39-year old has also announced his availability in Test cricket after five years.

The self-proclaimed ‘Universe Boss’ said before CWC 2019 that he will bid adieu to international cricket after the showpiece ICC event, but as of now, while he was speaking ahead of West Indies’ vital clash against India, Gayle said he will play in the Test series against India right after the tournament.

“It’s still not the end. I still have a few games to go. May be another series to go, as well. Who knows, we will see what happens.”

“My plans after World Cup? I may play a Test match against India and then I will definitely play the ODIs against India. I won’t play the T20s. That’s my plan after the World Cup,” Gayle said.

India’s tour in the Caribbean will consist of three T20Is, three limited over matches followed by the Test series.

The tour will open on 3rd of August with the shortest version of the game; the ODIs are lined up from 8th of that month and the Tests will take place from August 22 to September 3.

West Indies media manager Philip Spooner later assured Press Trust of India that the series against India will be Gayle’s last in national jersey.

“Yes, Chris will play his last series against India,” Spooner told.

Gayle has so far scored two fifties in England but yet to show his superlative form.

“In these next three games, I’d love to get a hundred,” he said. “But if it doesn’t happen, I can’t actually complain or be too hard on myself. I’ve actually achieved a lot.

“I’m definitely up there with the greats without a doubt. I enjoy each and every moment playing for West Indies. It’s been a lot of ups and downs. But I could not have had a better career as a player representing the West Indies,” Gayle said.
