He is 42 years old. Form also lost. There is no aggression in batting like before. Can't even get a run. As a result, the demand for franchise leagues around the world is declining.
Once upon a time there was no franchise league without Chris Gayle. Gayle did not get any team in Pakistan Super League (PSL) this time! Also a few more star cricketers did not get the team.
Chris Gayle has become synonymous with T20 cricket over the past decade. The undisputed 'Universe Boss' of this format. He owns the highest runs, sixes and centuries. The real entertainer of cricket. But everything has an end.
Gayle's rule is also coming to an end. He has signaled his retirement from cricket in the last T20 World Cup. Now he wants to retire after playing a farewell match on home soil. If the Caribbean board does not organize this, then maybe the World Cup will be Gayle's last event.
The player draft of PSL was held on Sunday. No party there has expressed interest in buying Gayle. Apart from Gayle, South African star leg-spinner Tabriz Shamsi, batsman David Miller and West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmeyer have not been named in the PSL squad.
