Gayle foresees bright future for West Indies

Having played in his last 50-over World Cup, the belligerent opening batsman of West Indies expressed disappointment on not making it to the semi-finals of the competition. However, he was delighted to see his unit ending the competition on a high note by beating a spirited Afghanistan side by 23 runs.

Reflecting on his World Cup journey, the 39-year old admitted that he could have performed better. Despite this, he is excited to see the current crop of batting as the Jamaica born is anticipating them to restore the lost pride of the country. Smashing 49 sixes in 35 World Cup games, the six hitting machine also advised the unit to get behind Jason Holder and prepare for the next edition of the mega-event.

“The future looks bright, with (Shimron) Hetmyer, Shai (Hope), and (Nicholas) Pooran – these guys will carry the flag and make sure West Indies cricket is back to where it belongs. They have a young skipper in Jason Holder. They have to rally around and look forward to next World Cup,” the veteran said sharing his feelings after playing his last World Cup game.
