The upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 set to watch quite a few legendary players calling curtains on their International career. One of them would be Chris Gayle, who recently confirmed that he is not going to don Windies Jersey in ODI format after the completion of ICC World Cup 2019. Meanwhile, Darren Sammy lauds Chris Gayle’s incredible effort for West Indies.
It’s been 40 years – Darren Sammy
Darren Sammy believes that the Windies team would win the cup. Further, he went on to add saying that he believes in the Bible, which says that number 40 is the best number. So far, it has been 40 years since Windies winning the ICC World Cup.
”With Chris Gayle retiring, the ‘Universe Boss’ will want to leave with a bang. I just have a strong feeling. ‘It’s been 40 years since we last won the World Cup. I’m a biblical man and the number 40 comes up a lot in the Bible,” Darren Sammy said.
”I think it’s our time to rise up. ‘I think man-for-man the batting line-up is really good. The key is to have bowlers who can take wickets in English conditions and I think we have that,” he added.
Well, as Darren Sammy said, the presence of Chris Gayle is going to be huge for Windies. He got the capability of winning the game single-handedly by destroying any kind of bowling attack on his day. Windies will start their world cup campaign on May 31st against Pakistan.
