Bridgetown, Barbados: West Indies coach Ottis Gibson insisted that the explosive opener Chris Gayle does not figure in the team talks and that his entire energy was devoted to doing well against India in the second Test.
Gayle is out of the national squad due to a row with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). "We don't sit down and discuss Chris Gayle. We discuss how to get Dravid and Laxman out, how to stop Ishant Sharma from taking six wickets, how we can win the Test. We don't talk about Gayle," said Gibson after the controversial opener issued a statement in which he didn't have complimentary things to say about Gibson.
"We are trying to build a team which is competitive and can start to win. Everyone has a part to play in it, including Gayle if he chooses. He knows the score but he's choosing his own path," he added.
