West Indies,Chris Gayle,ODIs West Indies batsman Chris Gayle to retire from one-day international cricket after 2019 World Cup

The veteran of 284 ODIs, in which he has amassed 9 727 runs at an average of 37.12 with 23 centuries - the most by a West Indian - said it was very possible the Windies, who had to play qualifiers to guarantee a World Cup berth, can triumph despite their lowly ranking. It was the first double hundred in the World Cup.

Gayle will continue to play on the T20 franchise circuit and hopes to be picked for The Hundred, England Cricket Board's new competition, when it begins in 2020.

Speaking to espncricinfo, he went on to say: "You´re looking at a great man, I´m the greatest player in the world". If we get on top of them it can change the series.

With the odds yet again firmly stacked against West Indies in the upcoming One-Day International series, marquee batsman Shai Hope says the Caribbean are bracing for a strong challenge from England but also plan to counter with firepower of their own. "I guess England should invite me over".

However, Hope said while the Windies were cognisant of the challenge, they were not intimidated and would be looking to spring a surprise, similar to what occurred in the preceding three-Test series. "Fingers crossed. We'll see what happens".

"I don't know who is opening the bowling for England, but any bowler is going to beware of Chris Gayle". Of course. I can't complain.

Leg-spinner Adil Rashid and seamers Chris Woakes and Mark Wood then each bagged two wickets as the hosts were rolled for 200 in 43.5 overs.

"It was a great Test series", he said. "This is the ideal time to get the universe boss now he is 39'". Since then, though, he has played just 29 ODIs for the West Indies while playing 212 T20 matches across the globe. "They have to do that for me and definitely try and get me the trophy but I will be looking to actually put my input into it as well to determine it", Gayle said.

"If I don't start it, it won't be a tournament". At the end of the day everybody should be happy and enjoy the game. "But I will destroy them anyway".

"Maybe feel he could have achieved more because he made so many scores over 50, and I once said to him, he needs to increase his conversion rate, but I think he is satisfied with himself", Moodie said. He sits behind legendary Brian Lara on matches played and runs scored and could surpass him by the time the 39-year-old retires.
