Every team has a chance to win: Gayle

Colombo, Sep 13: Explosive opener, Chris Gayle who returned to the national side after a year, looks forward to revive those happy moments during the ICC World T20, as he had recorded his career-best 333 against The Islanders at Galle in 2010.

Gayle, known for his huge sixes, holds the record for the maximum hits to the stands, as he has registered 27 sixes in the tournament (ICC World T20), and would look forward to extend his dominance in the T20 World Cup that is starting on Tuesday.

According to West Indies Cricket Board's press release Gayle was quoted as saying that he was very fortunate to have recorded his career-best Test score here at Sri Lanka.

"To get that triple century was great for me. I have some happy memories here in Sri Lanka," Gayle was quoted as saying.

Gayle was hopeful of another golden run in the T20 World Cup, as he was well prepared and is keen on performing well this time around in the mega event.

"I am hoping to use that as a booster to bigger and better things during the tournament. We know what we're about. We know what we are here for."

Gayle also felt that the current Windies team is balanced and is brimming with confidence as they can fancy their chances at winning the trophy as well.

"When you look at our team you can say we are well balanced," the opener said.

"We want to get it together this time around. Once we stick to what we know, I don't see any reason why we can't go all the way."

The Jamaican who is the only West Indian to have scored a century in T20 World Cup, as he hit 117 runs off 57 balls against South Africa in the inaugural edition of World T20, felt the team can go all the way to win the trophy provided it gets a good start.

"We have to adapt to the conditions as quickly as possible," he said. "We want to make a solid start and look to put other teams under some pressure.

"There are a lot of competitive teams here. Every team has a chance to win and we have to be at our best at all times. The World T20 is 'gonna' be a cracker."
