Gayle looks lively ahead of vital Test
Saturday 26 June 2010
Chris Gayle leaps to catch the ball as West Indies train ahead of their third Test against South Africa, which begins at the Kensington Oval in Barbados today.
The West Indians are 1-0 down in the series coming into this final match after the tourists won the first Test in Trinidad by 163 runs. On that occasion, Gayle himself was out for just six in the first innings out of a total of 102. The second Test was a batsman-dominated draw, meaning West Indies badly need to win, but Gayle's opening partner Dale Richards is undaunted. "I think we should come out and play some very positive cricket," he said. "That will really help the people in the Caribbean."
