Chris Gayle is as usual busy with T20 life and this time it would include the CPL.
After a stellar stint with Somerset in the NatWest T20 blast, where he scored 328 runs including a 150, the big Jamaican can’t help but take notice of the tests series back home against the Aussies.
“I’d love to play a few more international games to be honest with you, but we’ll have to wait and see. It’s tough, the travelling is very hectic, sometimes you have to know when you’ve reached the limit in life, sometimes you have to draw the line.” Said Gayle.
“But I’ll still push to play International cricket, when I go back home I will have a discussion with the coach and may be with the board, that we can work out Chris Gayle’s future, to see if they are still interested, I’m still interested so I’ll look forward to that and see how best it can work out.”, added the big man.
He admitted that he still loves test cricket which is a ‘test of character’ and One day cricket as well, although he is considered the king of T20 cricket. Chris called himself the King across all formats , “I scored two triple hundreds and 21 Odi centuries, so I’m the King of something, I’m the King of all formats” recorded the Jamaican.
West Indies is in the middle of a Steen test against the Australians and Chris said that he has his ‘ fingers crossed’ and said that the youngsters who got the opportunity should make most of it.
He also spoke at length about T20 tournaments across the world and called IPL by far the best T20 league.
“There is no doubt there’s a big gap between other leagues compared to the IPL” he ssays. “IPL is definitely no 1 , but the Caribbean Premier league is fantastic too and the BigBash league is up there as well. Those three leagues are the top leagues.” He added.
Gayle was excited by the prospects of the upcoming CPL and also called it a Party league.
