West Indies hitter Chris Gayle appeared to make a statement about his retirement plans on Thursday, just days after receiving a standing ovation from his international teammates following West Indies' final game in the 2021 T20 World Cup.

Gayle earned a standing ovation from his teammates and fans at the stadium after being dismissed in the team's final game of the tournament against Australia, and the left-handed batter acknowledged the standing ovation with a raised bat.

Gayle, on the other hand, stated on Thursday that he is not leaving.

Gayle, dubbed the 'Universe Boss,' has yet to publicly announce his retirement and is still playing limited-overs cricket for the West Indies. In the Indian Premier League, he most recently played for the Punjab Kings.

Gayle stated after the game against Australia that he would "love to play" in another T20 World Cup.

"I'd love to play one more World Cup. But I don't think they will allow me. It's been a phenomenal career. I didn't announce any retirement but they actually give me one game in Jamaica to go in front of my home crowd, then I can say 'hey guys, thank you so much.' Let's see," Gayle had said.

With 14,321 runs scored in 453 matches, the left-handed Windies hitter is the top run-getter in T20 history.

Dwayne Bravo, Gayle's Windies partner, has previously announced his retirement after the West Indies' 2021 T20 World Cup.On retirement plans, Chris Gayle makes a three-word statement.
