    Speaking about his approach to the game, the Windies batsman said that he shares his point of view and keeps it as simple as possible. He explained that not everyone is a power hitter, and not to say you are going to try to hit sixes like Chris Gayle. But he believes there are ways and means to get the strike-rate up when to take on a bowler and pull the trigger.


    You should be wary of Hendricks instead of me: Gayle 

    In the press conference, Gayle appreciated Reeza Hendricks who has scored two hundreds in a row. He stated that people keep mentioning his name, but it should actually be Hendricks that everyone should be wary of.

    The left-hand batsman noted that he would love Hendricks to make it three in a row and that will be nice to see.
