West Indies legendary batsman Chris Gayle isn’t getting his adieu rewards from West Indies Cricket Board. He indicated before the ICC World Cup 2019 that he wants to play another test before saying goodbye. But, it seems Cricket West Indies(CWI) isn’t ready to hear this. They’re ready to use their brain more than passion.

Chris Gayle isn’t getting his goodbye rewards from West Indies

West Indies will host India soon for ODI and Test series. Chris Gayle told before the World Cup that he is waiting for the last test to play. The 39-year-old batsman is eagerly waiting to say goodbye with a great style. But, CWI didn’t listen this. They didn’t keep his name on Test squad.

Chris Gayle repeated his wish in the World Cup. He was eagerly wanted to say goodbye with big style. Sadly, it won’t happen it seems. West Indies legendary Curtly Ambrose said –

Such kinds of the decision will give the wrong message to the whole squad. He played 103 test for the team. He also scored over 7000 runs. But, this is all five years old memory. 

Perhaps this is the biggest reason CWI didn’t take the risk to call him to play against a team like India. It could be suicidal. Chris Gayle also failed to do any significant thing in the World Cup. He doesn’t have the proper fitness to play test matches. CWI also kept these things in mind.

Moreover, the overall situation of West Indies cricket isn’t so good. Most of their players including youngsters are not performing good. The World Cup performance and T20 series vs India showed it clearly. It will be a big risk to give priority on passion right now.

Chris Gayle had the chance to finish his career with a positive vibe in front of home supporters. But, he won’t.

CWI kept their faith on the team who beat England in the start of this year. Alzarry Joseph and Jomel Wariccan excluded due to injury. Rahkeem Cornwall and Shamar Brukser got the place in the squad list instead of them.
