Adrian Barath welcomes Chris Gayle's return to Windies squad

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Birmingham: Adrian Barath has welcomed Chris Gayle’s return to the West Indies squad after the Jamaican was included for the upcoming ODI series against England.

"We always welcome players into the set-up. He`s been in the set-up for years and everyone has respect for Chris.” Barath was quoted as saying by a news agency.

"It`s great to have him back and he`ll lend experience to our players," added the opener who was excluded from the 15-man squad following a poor show in the ongoing Test series against England.

"Having Chris in our team (makes it) a really solid team. The depth in our batting - with Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy, the Bravos (Dwayne and Darren), Marlon Samuels, Andre Russell - once we get going in the powerplay it would be difficult to say how could we not chase a big score or set one.”

The ODI series starts from June 16.
