The burly Jamaican featured in nine games this year where he scored just 200 runs at an average of 22.22. His strike rate too which is normally around the 150-mark had dipped down to 122.69.
“It was a disappointing one. No one actually clicked in all departments at all. It was more so in patches and we need more of a collective unit to perform out there. But, it just did not happen at all,” Gayle said.
Gayle had quite a low key tournament even in 2016, when his side made it to the finals. But prior to it, in 2015, the left-hander had smashed his way to 491 from 14 games at an average of 40.91 and with a strike rate of 147.44.
He would ideally want to repeat such heroics again when he gets his chance in the next edition.
