West Indian legendry cricketer Chris Gayle said that he is excited to be in Pakistan after 15 years, adding that he is ready to entertain spectators in Pakistan with his superb shots while playing for Quetta Gladiators in the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Chris Gayle said in his statement that,
“I’m excited to be in Pakistan for the first time in 15 years. Unfortunately, I only have two games because of international duties, but as I said, the first thing I’m looking to do is to give my best to Gladiators,”
“Hopefully, I can get a start and showcase my entertainment side of the cricket so that fans feel a bit happy and I can give them something to cheer about.”
Gayle couldn’t do much in the previous two editions of the PSL while playing for Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings, but for the aggressive batsman, that’s the story of the past as he’s confident of a good show this time.
“I’m always confident, man. I’m always a confident player. You know, I’m the greatest,” Gayle said.
“What I’ve been in the past, that’s history now,” he added.
He further added to his statement,
“You know, I wanted to play the full tournament because I really want to actually come in and dominate the PSL and show you guys: ‘hey, this is what you guys have been missing,’ but it is what it is, and I just have to work with the situation now. Hopefully, these two games can create wonders,”
“I’m ready to take on the first ball, ready to do what I am accustomed to doing and putting the team in a winning position,”
The power hitter has shared his game plan and also provided some advice to youngsters.
“It is all about the strategy of how you go about a game. It’s not like I plan to score a century but the situation of the game [decides it] so you break down a game stage by stage. It’s not all about hitting big sixes, it is all about strategy and the momentum to have in that particular game as well,”
“I always want to be the last person standing in the middle. And as opening batsmen always want to be the last person to be standing,” he added.
