The center of attention in the second one-day international match between West Indies and India can only be on one player — Windies opener Chris Gayle. The already-legendary power-hitting batsman has announced his pending retirement from international cricket — though after stating that he would call it a career after the 2019 Cricket World Cup, he backtracked, according to AFP. Now it appears that the series against India may be his final set of ODI matches, and Sunday’s game will mark the 300th ODI of the 39-year-old’s record-setting career. If so, he could go out on a high note breaking a record held by another West Indies legend in the match that will live stream from Queens Park Oval.

Gayle needs a mere seven runs to surpass Brian Lara as West Indies all-time leading ODI run-scorer, according to CricBuzz. But before the rains came to wash out the first ODI in Guyana, Gayle got off to the slowest start of his ODI career, recording a mere four runs in 31 balls. After an uninspiring World Cup performance, Gayle may seem hard pressed to even accrue those seven runs.
But Gayle told CricBuzz that he was more interested in the performance of his team’s bowling unit.
“We got to put pressure, and try to get deep into their batting line-up,” Gayle said.
“In the World Cup I thought our bowlers did a great job, and [we’ll look to] just continue from there and just try to be consistent.”
