Following his knock, he was given a send-off, leading to speculations that he must have retired from ODIs.
However, Gayle cleared the air regarding his alleged retirement.
With the speculation of his retirement ripe all around, Gayle clearly mentioned that he hasn't announced anything.
In a video released by Windies Cricket on Twitter, Gayle said that he had announced nothing regarding his retirement from the format.
Meanwhile, he also insisted that he is sticking around for the time being, 'until further notice'.
Meanwhile, following the match, Kohli seemed to be unaware of Gayle's post-match video clip and praised him on his illustrious career so far.
"Chris Gayle the person is the best part of him. I've been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with him as a friend and get to know him as a person, and he is a gem of a human being," added Kohli.
As far as Gayle's retirement plans go, he had initially planned to call time on his career following the conclusion of the ICC World Cup 2019 last month.
However, following his intense performance in the tournament, he decided to stick around for a while.
In the meantime, he also broke a number of records in the format during the ongoing India series.
Chris Gayle for West Indies in ODIs:— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) August 14, 2019
- Most matches
- Most runs
- Most 100s
- Highest individual score
- Most sixes
- Most ducks
No other cricketer from the top nations has all these records for his country! #Legend @henrygayle
Speaking of Gayle's next venture, he has not been selected for the upcoming Test series against India.
Meanwhile, their next series would be in November, when they travel to India for a full series against Afghanistan, starting with the T20Is on November 5.
Thus he will have to wait for three months at least to play any white-ball cricket for the Windies.
