West Indies mainstay Chris Gayle highlighted the squad’s unity in the Twenty20 series against Australia after his winning shot of 67 in Game 3 at Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St. Lucia of the week last.
Gayle smashed 67 of 38 deliveries with four fours and seven sixes to bring the score to 4-0 in the five-game series. Australia won the fourth game by four points.
Gayle’s shot came after a fruitless run for the southpaw who batted at number three and not an opener.
They had a disappointing three-game Twenty20 streak against Sri Lanka in Antigua and also the first two games against Australia.
Gayle addressing his teammates after the game said: “This unit, believe me, we are going to be unbeatable. We have to move forward and grow more and more.”
“We have a great unit in the locker room, which is such an important thing. You can see it in the middle when we cross the rope and the guys are playing fantastic cricket, ”he said.
Gayle was happy to contribute, but said it’s not just about him.
He said during his poor form he tried to change his approach to the bat by scoring singles and deuces which didn’t work for him.
The Twenty20 World Cup will take place in the United Arab Emirates in October.
