Chris Gayle has announced his retirement from ODIs at the end of the World Cup later this year in England. Gayle is 273 runs away from becoming the 14th player to score 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.

Following the incident involving Shannon Gabriel and Joe Root, England player Moeen Ali has called for the usage of stump mics to eliminate abusive sledging from cricket. Moeen, in his autobiography, claimed that he had been racially abused by an Australian player during the Ashes in 2015.
“It’s time for people to behave themselves,” Moeen said. “Turn the stump mics up. Why turn them down? So people can swear? There is no reason to get personal.”
