Meanwhile, Chris Gayle also led St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the recently concluded Carribean Premier League. The combative batsman is also setting his eyes on the next year World Cup.
On the other hand, Windies will tour India for two Test matches, five One Day Internationals, and three T20 Internationals. Thus, Gayle will like to hit the ground running in the limited-overs leg.
Chris Gayle has been instrumental in the success of the Windies and will hold a key role in the upcoming World Cup. Gayle had also scored a fine double hundred in the previous edition of the World Cup.
