Gayle ‘still good for WI’
LONDON – Head coach Stuart Law has described superstar opener Chris Gayle as a player “committed to the cause” and believes his stellar record for West Indies should count towards “leniency” in his selection.
However, the Australian was careful to note that the veteran left-hander would have to still meet certain “guidelines” but said that from what he had seen during the recent limited overs tour of England, Gayle was still a valuable asset to the side.
“There are certain players you give leniency to. Chris is one of our greatest-ever players. You have got to pay respect to that,” Law told noted cricket website ESPNCricinfo.
“Not saying it is an open draw, but there have got to be certain guidelines, which I am still trying to work out. What I saw in the T20 game in Durham and what I saw in the ODI at The Oval was a guy who was committed to the cause.” (CMC)
