"Gayle made the announcement just ahead of a Windies practice session leading up to the One-Day International series against England at Kensington Oval in Barbados," a statement on Windies cricket official website said.
Gayle also has the most number of centuries by a West Indian in a 50-over game with 23 to his name.
Gayle has also picked up 165 wickets.
Earlier this month, Gayle made a return to international cricket after he was named in the ODI squad for the first two matches against England. The dashing left-hander last played an ODI for the West Indies in July 2018 - in a home series against Bangladesh.
