Today, BCCI released a list of players who have registered for the upcoming IPL 2022 mega auction, and many fans are distraught with the absence of Chris “The Universe Boss” Gayle’s name from the list.
And the question being posed, has the world seen the last of Chris Gayle in the Indian Premier League?
The social media platform Twitter lit up with questions following the revelation of the IPL 2022 players auction list.
The BCCI noted that 1,214 players have registered for the upcoming mega auction, and fans are still at a loss and in shock not seeing Gayle’s name on the list.
Gayle is said to be one of the greatest T20 players, if not the best.
He has the record in the IPL of being the number one among international players.
The former Windies opener has represented the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), and Punjab Kings (formerly known as King XI Punjab) over the last 14 years.
He has amassed 4965 runs in 142 matches and stands 7th in the all-time highest-scorers list.
Gayle has hit most centuries (6) and sixes (357) in the cash-rich league.
Additionally, his knock of 175 not-out at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in the IPL in 2013 gives him bragging rights as the individual with the highest score in the tournament.
When Gayle officially retires, he will go down in history as not only one of the best T20 players but also one of the greatest cricketers.
