“The bigger picture is actually to get three T20 titles under my belt. That’s actually the goal I’m setting.” Gayle said.

The World Cup is still a long way off but by the time you blink it’s World Cup time. So we have to try and keep the energy, keep fit, be ready and show the region what we are capable of.

We have quite a few series coming up and we have a lot of cricket leading up to that. We’ll try and take as much as possible out of these series.
