Cricket West Indies is hoping to give Chris Gayle a proper send-off at Sabina Park when it hosts Ireland for a white-ball series in January next year.

Following a disappointing performance at the ICC T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, Gayle had indicated that he would love to play one more match in West Indies colours before his home fans, a request that has divided opinions across the region.

“That would be, hopefully, if fans are allowed into Sabina, a good opportunity for us to say farewell to Chris at his home ground,” CWI CEO Johnny Grave said on Mason&Guest.

So because he didn go out in a blaze of glory at the T20 WC or for that matter in de ODI WC, he shud be given another opportunity? What happens if he fails again?

BTW he didn look dat disappointed after de T20 WC

Not only that. CWI have basically told the selectors that Gayle must be picked for an international match. What utter nonsence.

Be patient guys. Afterall you only have to wait until January of next year for the Irish to make history with their showing at Sabina Park.

After that you don't have to listen to Chrissy and her vastly redundant "Mad dem, Crampy!" any more. 21+ years way more than enough.

On that decision alone, Skeritt and his gonadless bunch should beat a hasty retreat from West Indies cricket.

HAWK SPIT!!

West Indies cricket is on life support and instead of Skeritt and co attempting to revive the patient they are bowing to the whims and fancies of a universe don.

This is shameful. If Skeriit was close by I would stick a boot in his...

Where is the plan to take us out of this mess?

Where does Skeritt's prority lie?

I do believe this is the correct decision.

The notion from a certain journalist and commentator that this will set a dangerous precedent is nonsense. CWI will from time to time make decisions that suits a particular time frame and I believe this is the timeframe for such a decision.

Christopher Henry Gayle is no ordinary cricketer, he is a giant, a great West Indian and World cricketer who brought joy to the hearts of millions of fans.

The self titled Universe Boss deserves such a sendoff by CWI, he earned it. Such a gesture will send the right message to all cricketers in the region, representing the WI makes you a "somebody".

This is excellent leadership by the Director, the President and VP.

It is my contention that people like Fazeer Mohamed and Philo Wallace should be kept far away from WI cricket as their thinking is molded in the "you are a nobody" mentality.

This playing to the gallery and appeasing the fantasies of a universe don will take West Indies cricket no where. Wasn't the biggest stage (T20 World Cup) afforded to the don to masquerade and have a proper send off?

After all, the geriatric should not have been on the T20 World Cup side...but for his last hoorah.

Skerrit et al are bare shits who do not deserve taking decisions on behalf of West Indies cricket. They have proven beyond a measure of a doubt that they are cowards who succumbed to the fancies of a don.

You stand for nutten.

Wasn't there a grand send off during the T20 World Cup which is a much bigger stage than West Indies V Ireland?

So because the universe jackass shat on his tail then, we must give him another send off? This is ridiculous, to say the least.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, a man who did not deserve being on the T20 side was given an opportunity to sing his last song and because he flopped big time is petulantly crying for another one and big men have to acquiesce?

Tell Gayle go to France.

You is a real skunt. I posted opinions and questions and you treated them as facts. You is a small fry who does not deserve the big stage as well as my attention. And I will no longer dignify your shit here with a response.

Guhlong you hear.

it would be best not to engage Powen on any serious topic.

i believe Gayle was joking when he asked for a send off at Sabina. and that even he is surprised that CWI took him seriously

i am not opposed to giving our players a decent sendoff but how many can one player get?

and suppose he says afterwards that he wants to play some more: the next T20 WC and as "the universe boss" he so deserves?

He'll just (deservedly) go out like a dud.

From what I recall, his first ODI ton was against the minnow Zim, so who better to target for his finale than another minnow.

If this were boxing and the ref fail to stop the fight the corner would have thrown in the towel to save the boxer from further punishment. The UA is no longer able to make rational decision so someone should step in tour save him from further humiliation

If given a a send off vs Ireland, as a matter of principle, I hope he fails and CWI gets an embarrassment
