West Indies need to be more consistent, admits Gayle
Port-of-Spain: West Indies skipper Chris Gayle said his side needs to be more consistent in the Super-Eight stage of the World Twenty20.
The hosts conceded a sizeable 191 against England at Guyana and though rain conspired to make them the winners in the end, Gayle said his bowlers were an erratic lot.
“We have got to be more consistent in the bowling department. Having conceded 191 runs against England, I think we just lacked some penetration and good line and length, but hopefully we can get it correct by the next round,” Gayle was quoted as saying in Trinidad Guardian.
West Indies whipped minnows Ireland by a comfortable 70-run margin in their first match before ending unlikely winners against England, thanks to Duckworth-Lewis method.
Gayle said West Indies have a great opportunity to win the title for the first time.
“I think we have a good chance of making the Caribbean people proud, and with these two victories in Guyana, we should go from strength to strength. We just have to stay focussed and play hard cricket over the next two weeks,” Gayle said.
“I think the crowd was fantastic in Guyana, and I still call on the people to continue with this sort of support.”
