Gayle wants World Cup win

Gayle wants World Cup win
02 May

Veteran West Indies opener Chris Gayle has listed winning next year's World Cup in England among his remaining high priorities, as his stellar international career winds towards an end.

The 38-year-old returned to West Indies one-day colours following a near 2-1/2 year break last September, and will now spearhead the Caribbean's batting at the May 30 to July 14 World Cup.

In reference to his remaining career targets Gayle said his focus is on two things, winning the IPL this year and the World Cup for West Indies next year.

Gayle is the Windies leading one-day player, scoring 9,585 runs from 281 One Day Internationals, notching 23 centuries.

The upcoming showpiece in England is expected to be his last World Cup, which remains the only title missing from his achievements.

Gayle has been in excellent form in the Indian Premier League, already having scored 252 runs from four innings at an average of 126 and a strike rate of 161.
