Have no respect for Chris Ambrose: Chris Gayle
It is worth mentioning here that Chris Gayle was part of both the World Cup glories in 2012 and 2016. His presence gives a new dimension to the team’s batting attack. He will look to win one more T20 World Cup for his country before his retirement.
Gayle has been included in the West Indies squad for the upcoming tournament in Oman and UAE. Nonetheless, when Ambrose said that he won’t field Gayle in his first-choice XI, Gayle came up with his own opinion.
The veteran cricketer added that he had no respect for Curtly Ambrose. “I am speaking about Curtly Ambrose. I am singling out Curtly Ambrose, one of your own.
I highly respected him when I came into the West Indies team,” the experienced campaigner told The Island Tea Morning Show on Tuesday. “When I just joined the team, I looked up to this man,” he said.
“But I am now speaking from my heart. I don’t know what, since he retired, what he had against Chris Gayle. Those negative things he has been saying within the press, I don’t know if he is looking for attention, but he is getting the attention. So I am just giving back the attention which he requires and which he needs,” he added.
“I can tell you personally, and you can let him know that Chris Gayle, the Universe Boss, have no respect for Curtly Ambrose whatsoever. I am finished with Curtly Ambrose,” he further said.
