Chris Gayle named vice-captain for the World Cup

West Indies have always been a competitive team in the limited overs format courtesy their aggressive style of play and fearless brand of cricket that they adopt. 

Just before the ICC World Cup 2019, Cricket West Indies have taken a bold decision and they have announced Chris Gayle as the deputy of Jason Holder for the mega event in England and Wales. 

"It is always an honour to represent the West Indies in any format and this World Cup for me is special," Gayle said after the announcement. "

Chris Gayle is in amazing form these days and he's been scoring quite a lot of runs recently in ODIs for his team. On the other side, Shai Hope has been named their vice-captain for the ongoing Tri-series against Ireland and Bangladesh. 

West Indies have always performed well in the ICC tournaments and they will start their World Cup campaign against the green shirts on 31st May 2019.
