SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (JUNE 26, 2019) (ICC - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) WEST INDIES PLAYER CHRIS GAYLE, ON PLANS AFTER THE WORLD CUP, SAYING: (Q: "After this World Cup what are your plans going forward?

And in your career what are your personal memorable moments and not so memorable?") "My plans are for the World Cup.

Maybe a Test match against India and then I'll play, definitely play the ODIs against India.

I won't play the T20s.

That's my plan after World Cup." (Q: "Memorable moments in your career?") "Two triple centuries in Test cricket.

Those two will definitely be on top.

A double century in the World Cup as well.

Those are a couple of the moments to come up with at this particular time, but there's a lot more to actually talk about.

But if I get into detail it will be a long list, to be honest with you.

But I'll stick with those for now." STORY: West Indies opener Chris Gayle wants to play the home series against India in August-September reversing his earlier decision to quit international cricket after the ongoing World Cup, the batsman said on Wednesday (June 26).

The 39-year-old had earlier this year announced his plans to retire after the World Cup to make way for younger players after two decades in international cricket.

Asked about his post-retirement plans, Gayle sprang a surprise saying he wanted to play the series against India.

India will play three Twenty20 internationals, as many one-dayers and two tests in West Indies, the last in Jamaica which could be Gayle's farewell at home.

Gayle is the only batsman to hit a test triple-century, a one-day double-century, and a Twenty20 hundred.

'No rush' for ICC to make decision on T20 World Cup, Richardson says

Australia bowler Kane Richardson has backed the International Cricket Council’s move to hold off on deciding the fate of the T20 World Cup. The tournament, hosted by Australia, is due to kick off in October, and the ICC said it was exploring “a number of contingency plans” due to the coronavirus pandemic but continues to prepare as if it will go ahead as normal. Sri Lanka are due to play Ireland in the opening match of the tournament in Geelong, near Melbourne, with 16 teams playing 44 games ahead of a final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in November.
