Next venture

Gayle to wait until November for next international assignment

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.
