Gayle hoped cricket will start again at its fullest.

LAHORE, Feb 23 : West Indies veteran stroke player, Chris Gayle has  said that he am glad to be playing cricket at this particular time, when corona griped the whole World as well as the play grounds.

” Gayle, who is the only player to smash more than a thousand sixes in T20 cricket, said  “Playing during this particular time is a blessing. Hopefully, things can get better in the future.

“When you look at what’s happening in the world there are no fans in the stadiums and people have to watch cricket  on television. It is something people and players look back and say we have to appreciate times when we actually had good things and not take them for granted.

“Things are tough with the world in pause. We must not take life for granted when things can open. We’re going to try to live the best life and live it to the fullest, spend more time with family and friends and reach out to the people a lot more.” “People were actually at a distance from their families and friends and when all this happened around the world, it brought them closer.”

“It’s good to be in Pakistan after 15 years,” said Gayle, who will leave shortly to feature in the West Indies’ T20I against Sri Lanka back home. “It’s fantastic! I did not get a full house based on restrictions, but it was good to see some people. It was good to have a blast. I am looking forward to continuing playing in Pakistan.”

Recalling the bitter-sweet memories of the 2006 tour, Gayle said: “My memory of playing a Test in Multan is good as I scored 94 [93 off 182], but missed out on a hundred. I was leg-before to Danish Kaneria. Then Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan kept us in the field for a long time under a boiling sun.
