When the Bangladesh Cricket Board is in a fix over sending its players for an arrangement in Pakistan for security reasons, West Indies batsman Chris Gayle has turned out and said that ‘Pakistan is perhaps the most secure spot on the planet now.’
Gayle, who is presently playing in the Bangladesh Premier League for the Chottogram Challengers, said that Pakistan currently guarantees presidential-level security to players. “Pakistan is probably the most secure spot right now on the planet. They state you will get presidential security so you are in acceptable hands. I mean we are in acceptable hands too in Bangladesh, right?” Gayle told journalists in Dhaka.
Sri Lanka as of late turned into the principal side to visit Pakistan for a Test arrangement in 10 years when they played two Tests in Karachi, inciting the Pakistan Cricket Board to welcome Bangladesh for three T20Is and two Tests. The BCB, be that as it may, are yet to accept an approach to the issue after their proposition of playing a large portion of the matches of the arrangement in Bangladesh was turned down.
An official choice on the issue will be taken on Sunday.
“We need more opportunity to settle on an official conclusion for the Pakistan visit as they’re such a large number of things to be sifted through. I trust we can do it at the Board meeting on January 12,” said Jalal Younus, director of the Media and Communication Committee of BCB.
On close to the home front, Gayle stated, he couldn’t want anything more than to continue playing cricket. “Many individuals still need (to) see Chris Gayle out there in the center. Regardless I have that adoration for the game and that energy for the game also. What’s more, I couldn’t imagine anything better than to carry on as far as might be feasible,” said Gayle.
The 40-year-old swashbuckler included, “Even in establishment cricket I am as yet playing a couple of games to a great extent around the world since regardless I believe I have a ton to offer.
“The body is feeling better. What’s more, I am certain I am getting more youthful as days go on.” The veteran opener was not part of the West Indies group for the India visit last December, having quit utilizing an opportunity to “reflect” on his future in universal cricket.
