IPL 2019: 3 players for whom the next IPL could be the last
#2 Chris Gayle
Known as the Universe Boss, Chris Gayle has been the face of T20 cricket since its inception. No other batsman has had such an impact on this format and like all good things, this is diminishing too. Apart from a few good knocks on certain occasions, Gayle has not been in good form.
Especially in IPL, he has been inconsistent in the past few seasons and he was picked up very late in the previous auctions. KXIP has retained him for next season but there would be concerns regarding his form and fitness. KXIP is certain to buy a few opening options and that would add pressure on the Jamaican.
Gayle has been playing only selected games for his country and next year's World Cup could be the end of his international career too. Apart from his brand value and entertainment factor, Gayle would contribute less to a franchise and it might not be a surprise next IPL becomes his last.
