Late arrival would be welcomed after IPL exit
But Sammy refused to close the door on the possibility after West Indies' five-wicket defeat against England at Lord's put them 1-0 down in the series, suggesting that both he and the coach, Ottis Gibson, would be content to accommodate Gayle's late arrival.
They badly need him and he should join them now man.
Bring back gayle and sarwan!
Pietersen wants Gayle return
Kevin Pietersen has said it would be "brilliant for the game" if West Indies recalled Chris Gayle for the remainder of the Test series against England.
Pieterson wants Gayle back... What's the connection here?
I want gayle back!
Well he isn't coming back. Frankly WI have moved on from jokers like him, and they're performing better than ever.
3 years ago he arrived late, claimed he wouldn't be upset if Test Cricket died, admitted to not wanting to be there, and his side duly lost by 10 wickets and an innings in the two tests. We had Bopara at 3, Bresnan on debut at 7, and were far from the team we are now. Darren Sammy might not be Garry Sobbers but he's doing a fine job and WI are doing much better now that they've got rid of lazy trainers and people who think they are bigger than the team.
Surely him getting knocked over by the likes of Steyn on a slow pitch in the IPL show that he wouldn't at all be able to cope with Anderson in swinging and seaming conditions?
I love how the WI players are enhancing their test reputations by not playing.
Gayle is rubbish anyway. He's like Sehwag but plays through cover instead of backward of point. He'd be useless in Eng.
Forgiveness lies too deep to be vanished away.
I WANT GAYLE!!
Remember what he did to australia 2009-10
Gayle's return is not gonna help Windies much on English Pitches, he's gonna struggle badly. They need Sarwan.
Sarwan at #4 and Bravo at #3 could change things around...
Kidding right ?
transition from IPL to Village cricket..
That will only help if these village cricketers know how to swing the ball...
out or in?
