Abu Dhabi: West Indian’s explosive opener Chris Gayle wants the latest and shorter format of cricket to be included in the T10 Olympic Games schedule.
Gayle, who is representing Team Abu Dhabi in the upcoming season of the Abu Dhabi T10 League, feels that T10 is a format that can advance cricket’s entry into the world’s biggest sporting events.
From his home in Jamaica, Gayle said he was eager to participate in the tournament. He said, ‘I am resting at the moment which I need but keeping in mind the Abu Dhabi T10 League, I will start some training soon and will be ready to play’.

After two seasons, he is making a comeback in this league, which he is very happy with. He is ‘very talented player’.
He said, ‘So I am definitely happy to be back in Team Abu Dhabi. Chris Morris of South Africa is also in my team and I have played with him before so it is good to return to play with him and other players.
Talking about the future prospects of T10, Gayle said, ‘I would love to see T10 in the Olympics. This will be a big thing for the game from a normal perspective.
He said, ‘I also think T10 can happen in America too. I think most people do not recognize America for cricket but T10 is perfectly suitable for getting inside the US and I believe it can also help in getting big revenue ‘.
