Salman Butt says “His record here is not like that of the Gayle the world knows” in T20 World Cup 2021. Butt includes that Chris Gayle is likely to battle amid the T20 World Cup 2021 within the UAE. Since the pitches don’t suit his style of play. Butt expressed that players with superior adjustment tactics will do well. In the UAE within the ongoing T20 World Cup. Some question marks have been raised. Over the selection of Gayle in the West Indies squad for the T20 World Cup 2021. He was dismissed for a 30-ball 20 in the practice game against Pakistan. Also, scored 13 as West Indies collapsed to 55 all-out. In their first Super 12 clash against England in Dubai.
“Chris Gayle is a big player and is known for his monster hits. But if you look at the pitches in the UAE and Gayle’s performance when he has played in the PSL, his record here is not like that of the Chris Gayle the whole world knows,” Salman Butt said.
“Batters who have a better method to deal with conditions over here or those who are used to playing in similar conditions, like Asian countries, will be able to execute their plans better. Also, you can look at the way Afghanistan batted on Monday. Of course, the pitch at Sharjah is playing better than how it did during the IPL,” Butt added.
Lastly, In spite of the fact that Gayle has been battling poor form. For a covered period of time in international cricket. Roddy Estwick supported him to do well in the upcoming games. Also, ahead of West Indies’ Super 12 clash against South Africa in Dubai.
