Right from the word go, playing the esteemed World Cup tournament sits as a major dream for any budding cricketer of the world. Same is the case with West Indian opening batsman Chris Gayle who represented his country in 5 World Cup tournaments. However, the senior pro wasn’t able to win it even once for the national team.
In his last mega-event, the 39-year old wanted to sign off his 50-over World Cup career in a grand style. To his dismay, that never happened as West Indies let crucial moments slip through their hands and got eliminated from the running cricket frenzy in England and Wales. Gayle’s own performance wasn’t up to the mark as he struggled and amassed only 2 half-centuries in 9 games of the event.
Recently, the veteran sat down to reflect on his World Cup memories with West Indies. Considering it as a major achievement, Gayle expressed gratitude to play so many World Cup games for West Indies. While the Jamaica born was jubilant to serve his country for a long period, he admitted frustration on not winning a single World Cup for West Indies.
