Right after blasting away everything in the last completed Bangladesh Premier League, Christopher Henry Gayle has been repeatedly failing in his international commitments for West Indies. But despite the feeble success of the super West Indian star, coach Stuart Law denied to write off his international career.
The 38 year old Gayle scored 38 runs in four innings during West Indies’ tour of New Zealand. the tour was a total disaster for the Caribbean’s where they lost the two-match Test series 2-0, the three-match one-day series 3-0 and the Twenty20 2-0 with one match washed out.
Law said, “Right now it probably doesn’t look like it but there’s plenty of cricket left in the big man.”
“He can destroy any attack, it doesn’t have to be a minnow.
“He’s central to the way this dressing room ticks and commands a lot of respect. He’s just got to start performing in the middle again.
“Chris Gayle didn’t click in this series. He had a viral infection in the one-dayers and, while T20 is probably his best format, he didn’t get the starts he wanted. He’s played this game long enough. He knows how to do it. He was pretty good in England a few months ago.”
“It was a pretty disappointing tour. New Zealand played good, disciplined cricket but we fell short,” the West Indian coach reckoned.
“We need to do a lot of hard work, planning and understanding. That means some soul-searching by looking in the mirror and asking if we gave it everything to change a game, get into a game and win a game.”
