Gayle departs in likely swansong for West Indies great

Chris Gayle of the West Indies made 15 off nine balls against Australia in the Twenty20 World Cup on Saturday, likely his final innings in national colors.

Gayle, 42, smashed two sixes before chopping a Pat Cummins delivery onto his stumps as he walked back with his bat raised and a standing ovation from his Abu Dhabi teammates.

The self-styled “universe boss” has not yet announced his retirement, but he is unlikely to play for the West Indies, who failed to defend their title this year.

Gayle, a left-handed batsman who can bowl off-spin, has amassed over 12,000 runs in white-ball cricket, including 27 centuries, since making his debut in a one-day international in 1999.
He has also appeared in 103 Tests, scoring 7,214 runs at an average of more than 42 and a high of 333.
