This will be his first T20I at Sabina Park.
After India comprehensively won the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series against the West Indies, the two teams will lock horns for the final on this tour for the lone Twenty20 International that will be played at Sabina Park in Kingston on Sunday.
Gayle's appearance at his home ground of Sabina Park will be his first Twenty20 global appearance since last April's World T20 final victory over England, but the 37-year-old has revealed he has no plans to retire.
The 25-year-old Trinidadian became the third player to score two T20 worldwide centuries, after Gayle and New Zealander Brendon McCullum.
West Indies might have become easy-beats in test cricket, but they showed on Sunday they are a different in the shortest version of the sport, especially with the bat.
IST: West Indies win toss, opt to bowl.
But T20 is one format where the home team starts on even keel against an Indian team which had its foot firmly on the pedal save an occasional blip in Jamaica.
"I gave them the captain's incentive, whoever goes and gets a fifty gets half my match fee". We talked about wrestling back the momentum. The crowds came out in big numbers and the smile on their faces does it for us.
The visitors have the same squad which won them the ODI series 3-1 while the Carlos Brathwaite-led West Indies have made significant changes for the match. Riding on his knock the West Indies chased down the total of 190 in just 18.3 overs. "They have carried on with the same team for a couple of years, and in experimental stage we'd have up and downs".
