Fortune Barishal frustrated with Gayle’s Performance!
CRICDOT DESK : Neither Chris Gayle nor Dwayne Bravo came to practice. Fortune authority was practicing one day after joining Barisal. After that only two cricketers played in the Caribbean. Although Gayle’s on-field performance has yet to impress fans. Despite playing five matches, the match-winning innings could not be gifted. Even then, he does not try to prepare himself well by practicing.
Yesterday at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Barisal batting coach Nazmul Abedin Fahim was asked if there was any discomfort in the team due to Gayle. “Gayle has been playing for many years,” he said. Caribbeans like this, don’t practice too much. They are used to playing like this. Our team environment is set that way.
Although the team management did not object to Gayle not practicing, he was disappointed with his performance. Fahim said, ‘He is not able to perform as a quality cricketer. Didn’t get a big innings from him. There are still a few matches in hand. I hope he will play a big innings.
Gayle is now 42 years old. His body does not attract the mind in practice. Instead, Fahim thinks he has to hide in the field. According to him, ‘there is nothing more to be gained from him than batting. You have to hide in the fielding. As such, nothing good has come out of Gayle yet. ‘
