Chris Gayle's leadership, charisma and skills will be sorely missed by West Indies cricket and fans across the world.

Against Afghanistan, Chris Gayle was his usual entertaining self, keeping up with the spirit of the game.

Other than captain Jason Holder, Gayle has been one of the voices in West Indies' dressing room.

Over the years, West Indies were very dependent on Gayle, but in the ongoing tournament, other players have taken over the mantle.

Against Afghanistan, Gayle notched the important wicket of Ikram Ali Khil. Khil had made 86-runs.

As a bowler, Gayle has notched two wickets for his team, while he has also registered four catches.

Gayle's highest score in the tournament has been 87.

Gayle has scored 242 runs in nine matches for West Indies in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Gayle has been average in the ongoing global showpiece event.

In his last ever Cricket World Cup match for West Indies, Chris Gayle missed out on breaking Brian Lara's record on becoming the highest WI ODI scorer. He was bowled by Dawlat Zadran for seven runs.
