Chris Gayle as West Indies vice captain along with the team management has called to plan for a series against South Africa to aim at getting their confidence back after some poor performances in the Test series.
Chris Gayle has been on fire in the field, his constant ally Lara has been dropped after a series of poor performances in the Ashes. Lara has been rested after this tour for a break to recover from a fever that affected him.
This series in South Africa is a test series. This will be the last test series for West Indies before heading to home to prepare for their World Cup 2014 preparation. This will also be the first time India has visited South Africa in 23 years. Still there is no word from cricket authorities on finding India’s replacement venue along with other pats.
For all the Tests, the Caribbean rivals will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing series in Australia and South Africa and will be particularly focused on ending their five Tests series against India without a win. d2c66b5586
