West Indies’ former cricketer Brian Charles Lara has spoken up about the T20 World Cup chances of Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo. The former cricketer feels that the upcoming Indian Premier League will play a big part in the chances of selection of the two-veteran cricketers.
"I think the IPL is going to be a huge point or signal for who is actually going to carry on," Lara said. "It's still going to be five months after the IPL for the World Cup. Fitness levels are very important, but a gruesome tournament like the IPL is going to tell the West Indies selectors who are the players that they really need going into the last four months of preparation for the World Cup.", he further added.
Dwayne Bravo featured in the T20I series against Ireland recently after a gap of almost 3 years. Whereas Chris Gayle has not appeared in a T20I game for the Windies since March 2019.
