“It was fortunate for us that Irfan was not playing the world cup giving an edge to West Indies,” he said in United Arab Emirate (UAE).
Irfan, about seven feet long Pakistan medium fast bowler, was unfit during the the tournament.
Known for his good line and length and bounce, making it hard for the batsmen to play, Irfan is considered on of the finest bowlers in the short format.
Gayle’s statement is an endorsement of this fact.
“I always remain in contact with my Pakistani fans through social media,” he said and added that he loved them.
