Want to play Test cricket again before retiring - Gayle

West Indies batsman Chris Gayle says he is open to a Test return before he retires from cricket.

The 37-year-old, who has not played Test cricket since September 2014, joked he could even return for the third Test against England next week at Lord's.

When asked by former England captain Michael Vaughan what it would take for a return to the five-day game, Gayle replied confidently: "Just for me to say when I’m ready."

The Windies board’s policy has meant that players can only be selected for international duty if they feature in the same format in domestic cricket, but a “temporary amnesty” has allowed Gayle to return to the one-day international squad to face England after the final Test.
