As he promised before, Chris Gayle finally signed off in style after a trademark innings against India. He struggled to get going in the first two ODIs, but alas, he bounced back in the third by scoring an astute 72 off 41 deliveries today in Trinidad, and Twitterati poured blessings on the same.
End of the "UNIVERSE BOSS"

There were raining sixes before the actual rain!
If this is indeed the last of Chris Gayle in West Indies colours, it's fitting. 72 off 41 is the memory to leave on, not earlier struggles.— Saurabh Somani (@saurabh_42) August 14, 2019
T20 pioneer & all-time great, ODI giant. Good enough for two Test triples
p.s Can we retire the cringeworthy Universe Boss monicker also?
Can't help it!
@henrygayle plz boss don't retire u still have so much left in you. Can't imagine international cricket without you boss.— Deepak Panda (@deepakpanda1412) August 14, 2019
So, was it all pre-planned??
He waited to break your record and then retire.— makaveli59 (@abinash79254807) August 12, 2019
A great batsman who will be remembered forever!!
I was confused whether it was an ODI or a T20 :D

Great player!! Incomparable!
I don’t know if @henrygayle has done enough to win this match, but his contribution to WI - despite a long running feud — and international cricket is enormous all told— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) August 14, 2019
West Indies will surely miss the "UNIVERSE BOSS"
Signs off in style. In his own inimitable style. Chris Gayle bossed in his last game too. #WIvIND— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) August 14, 2019
Will miss those huge sixes into the crowd!!
