Aakash Chopra says “Sir Ambrose was right” on Chris Gayle’s selection: T20 World Cup 2021. He has stated that Sir Curtly Ambrose was spot on in his assessment. Also, Chris Gayle’s batting form heading into the T20 World Cup 2021. Gayle (42) has registered the highest score of 13 in the ICC event. Previewing the Windies’ chances, Ambrose had stated. He did not see Gayle as an automatic choice in the playing XI. Hitting back at the former fast bowler. And then Gayle said he had lost respect for Ambrose.
Besides, defending champions West Indies were knocked out following their loss to Sri Lanka. Also, analyzing Windies’ chances ahead of their last Super 12 clash. Against Australia, Chopra pointed out that Ambrose had hit the nail on the head. With his pre-tournament prediction on Gayle.
“West Indies have been very lackluster. Chris Gayle had hit out at Curtly Ambrose ahead of the T20 World Cup after the latter expressed his disapproval at the squad chosen for the ICC event. But Sir Ambrose was right. This team is not strong at all. He did not see Gayle fitting into the playing XI. Gayle’s reputation is phenomenal but reputation is excess baggage in T20. His scores are very low and I don’t know whether or not he will play against Australia. If he plays, he might smash a few, but that hasn’t happened so far,” Aakash Chopra said.
“Lastly, this team has not been very good. Captain Pollard bats up and down the order, which makes no sense. Bowling is very weak. There is Ravi Rampaul and Andre Russell is their gun death bowler. This team has got very little going in their favor. Hetmyer got some runs in the previous game and Pooran has got some form going. So they might be able to put up some kind of fight,” Chopra added.
