“I’m actually out of the Test series, the back won’t hold up for that format at this point in time. But I haven’t retired from any format as yet,” Gayle was quoted as saying by espncricinfo. “As I go on I will keep informing the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) about my progress in the future with West Indies cricket.”
The West Indies were knocked out of the World Cup on Saturday after losing their quarter-final against New Zealand by 143 runs.
