Finally, the war between swashbuckling left-hander Chris Gayle and the West Indies Cricket Board seems to be over. The Jamaican destroyer has been named in West Indies Squad for the NatWest One-Day Series against England starting this month. It now breaks the 15-month exile from international cricket for Chris Gayle!
According to the WICB Site, Chairman of the Selection Panel, Clyde Butt has been quoted as “Chris is a player of proven quality and we are looking forward to him adding this dimension to the side and his contributions as a senior member of the squad.”
West Indies could fancy its chances of atleast winning the 3-ODI Series now that it boasts of world class players like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine.
Following is West Indies ODI Squad for the NatWest Series:
Darren Sammy (Captain), Dwayne Bravo (Vice Captain), Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Fidel Edwards, Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin (Wicket Keeper), Ravi Rampaul, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Smith
