COOLIDGE: Opener Chris Gayle has actually set his sights on a 3rd Twenty20 Globe Cup with West Indies as he prepares to return to global cricket after a lack of two years ahead of their T20 International series against Sri Lanka beginning on Wednesday.
Former captain Gayle last bet West Indies in an ODI against India in 2019 in what he then referred to as his last international look.
Gayle has maintained himself busy in T20 organizations across the world and played 2 suits for Quetta Gladiators in the recurring Pakistan Super League before going back to Antigua.
The 41-year-old, that was part of the 2012 and 2016 T20 Globe Cup-winning groups, stated he was focussed on securing the three-match home series yet the larger target is to defend their T20 title in this year’s World Cup starting in October.
” The larger image is actually to obtain 3 T20 titles under my belt. That’s really the objective I’m establishing,” Gayle claimed.
” The World Cup is still a long way off however by the time you blink it’s World Mug time. So we have to try and also keep the energy, maintain fit, be ready as well as show the area what we are capable of.
” We have quite a few series turning up and also we have a lot of cricket leading up to that. We’ll attempt and also take as long as feasible out of these series.”
