ICC World T20 India Vs west Indies: Gayle Ready to Face Ashwin
The sun was searing down the center of the Cricket Club of India when the overwhelming figures of Curtly Ambrose and Phill Simmons strolled down to check the nets.
It was near 32 degrees Celsius, presumably a few degrees more down in the nets. Andre Russell began with blast, hitting the toss downs out of the recreation center.
Be that as it may, the center was down at the limit line, where Chris Gayle addressed media's solicitation for a talk.
There's no mystery how the enormous West Indies opener will approach Thursday's ICC World Twenty20 semi-last against India. The main way he knows not is assault, and he made it even evident on Tuesday.
"Chris Gayle will dependably be sure, it doesn't make a difference which bowler will really be playing. Chris Gayle will hope to assault. That is the way of T20 cricket and that is the way of Chris Gayle too. No names, only the cricket ball, simply attempt to beat it as hard as possible," the Jamaican said beyond all doubt.
To him, it doesn't make a difference who the bowler is. That is the manner by which he managed the inquiry on taking care of Ravichandran Ashwin, who may be requested that by MS Dhoni open knocking down some pins at the Wankhede Stadium.
"I need to be rationally prepared for whichever specific bowler, not simply concentrate on Ashwin. It's nothing unexpected [Ashwin opening bowling]. That dependably happens. Dhoni dependably puts Ashwin up right on time," he said.
"They have such a large number of bowlers, Nehra is knocking down some pins well. With the new ball, Nehra is quite great. We need to keep our eyes open, play as per the circumstance," he said, conditioning down his energy.
Be that as it may, the West Indies are falling off an agitated thrashing in their last gathering match, where they lost to Afghanistan. While it didn't have any kind of effect as they had effectively met all requirements for the semis, Gayle needs to get over it with a win.
"We lost at that specific stage when we would not like to; we needed the triumphant consistency going. Be that as it may, these things happen in cricket. On a specific day any group can beat any group. Disillusioned with the misfortune however we need to get the terrible diversion off the beaten path.
"We are only two recreations away, and after that we can lift the trophy," he said before leaving for a hit at the nets.
