Haven’t retired from any format Gayle

A recurring back injury will certainly keep Chris Gayle out of the upcoming home Test series against England, but the destructive West Indies batsman insists that he is not retiring from any format of the game. West Indies on Saturday bowed out of the ICC World Cup 2015 after losing to New Zealand by 143 runs even after Gayle hit a 33-ball 61. Gayle, who has been struggling with a back problem, missed a couple of games in the quadrennial extravaganza but certainly wants to feature in next year's World T20.

"Definitely want to play the T20 World Cup next year for West Indies, there's no doubt about that. I've got a few concerns and a few injury (cases) to try and solve. I'll give myself some time and hopefully look back at it and see how well I can actually progress for West Indies cricket at this point in time. 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. As I go on I will keep informing WICB about my progress in the future with West Indies cricket," Gayle said in an interview after the match on Saturday.
