Windies star Gayle to retire from ODIs after World Cup

"Gayle can give you a flying start, he could bat, he has the experience now and he knows the English conditions - all those are added values that he brings to the team", he said. "I've played against Jofra on numerous occasions and he comes with a big reputation".

Gayle also called himself "the greatest player in the world", and insisted he is still the "Universe Boss". That will never change, man. I'll take that to the grave.

"Or should I say cut the string?"

Gayle may carry on playing T20 internationals until the next T20 World Cup, in Australia in October 2020, when he will be 41. He said, "Chris Gayle on the go, any day, would be one of the greatest sights in world cricket and blasting the bowling all over the place - he is really a class act". "I'll take that to the grave", ESPNcricinfo quoted Gayle as saying.

Earlier this month, the 39-year-old veteran batsman had been recalled by the Windies for the first two ODIs against England in preparation for this year's World Cup.

His 215 against Zimbabwe in 2015 is the fourth-highest score in ODI history - he is one of six men to have scored an ODI double hundred.

"Well, if I don't start it, it won't be a tournament", he said.

"I'm in good condition". I'm trying to keep up with the youngsters in the field who are like cats the way they chase the ball. I still have it in me and I'm still enjoying it,"he continued".

Manny Machado's $300M Padres contract is 2nd largest in Major League Baseball history
Machado has agreed to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the Padres , a source told USA TODAY Sports and the Associated Press. Machado's deal has an opt-out after five years, so he could potentially leave midway through the contract .

Root, who was dismissed for 102 with just one run needed, added 116 with captain Morgan as England reached the fourth highest successful run chase in one-day global history with eight balls to spare.

"They're a very settled side, they've got 15 players pretty much nailed on for that squad", Cook told AFP at a World Cup event in London's Trafalgar Square on Tuesday.

"Being back in West Indies colours is the most important thing". "We're all looking forward to that".

"We are going to try and win the series in West Indies and then we we come home we have the Pakistan series in the build-up".

But England will be well aware that their test side arrived in the Caribbean full of confidence only to be dispatched comfortably in the opening two games of the series and will be keen to avoid complacency this time around when it comes to the shorter form of the game.

Hope was outstanding in the last ODI series in Bangladesh last December, accumulating 297 runs and only being dismissed once. Lara scored 10,405 runs at an average of 40.48 with 19 centuries and 63 fifties. His glittering resume includes 49 fifties and 23 centuries at a strike rate of 85.52. Speaking at the event, Lloyd recalled being a part of the historic win by the Windies, particularly remembering his 149-run stand with Rohan Kanhai after being 50/3 in the inaugural edition of World Cup final.

Gayle hopes his fifth World Cup appearance will be the ideal ending to a stellar ODI career.

The trophy tour is a chance for the fans to see the coveted cup before the winning captain lifts it on July 14. So I think my role is that same as I've been doing for the past three or four years.
