Chris Gayle: Windies selectors set bad precedent?

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Sun Sep 19, 2021 6:10 pm

One reaction to the recent announcement of West Indies' provisional squad for the forthcoming T20 World Cup:

"Why Gayle is in the team is a mystery to me. He will be 42 years old on September 21 and shows his age. Gayle has scored very few runs in the past five years. During this tournament, he’s very slow in reacting to the faster bowlers and his judgement of the spin bowlers is faulty. Because of the below-par bowling, he might get away with the odd long hop or full toss to dispatch – nonetheless, not enough to make him productive.

He’s very slow in the outfield, and a captain has to be very careful in placing him. His fitness is of serious concern, yet the officials talk about the new fitness perspective that is required (still new?). Lead selector Roger Harper said that “Gayle was given a medical exemption for fitness, and while his stats are not up to par, he brings immense value to the team.”
