PTI Press Trust of India | Updated on June 26, 2019 Published on June 26, 2019

Dashing West Indies batsman Chris Gayle will retire from international cricket after the home ODI and Test series against India scheduled in August-September, revising his earlier plan to call it quits after the ongoing World Cup. Among the high-profile players in the last two decades, Gayle will follow in the footsteps of Steve Waugh (2004) and Jacques Kallis (2013), who announced their international retirement after playing against India. It is expected that Gayle will play his final international game, a Test against India, at his home ground Kingston in Jamaica, starting August 30.
