Former West Indies opener Philo Wallace does not believe Chris Gayle should be included in a West Indies squad for the ICC T20 World Cup to be held in the United Arab Emirates next month.

Wallace believes the 42-year-old Jamaican, arguably the best T20 player in history, who has served West Indies cricket well over the years, is now well past his best. He cites Gayle's performances so far in the 2021 Hero Caribbean Premier League as clear signs that the Universe Boss is not the game-changing player he used to be.

“Past performances don’t cut it,” Wallace argued while speaking on the Mason&Guest radio show in Barbados on Tuesday evening.

“Gayle has done wonderfully well. I have no disrespect for Christopher Gayle. I think he has done wonderfully well for the West Indies and himself but the time has come where you need to sit down or stand in a mirror and say ‘can I make it? Can I make it through a world cup?”

All dem fackers sound so apologetic for expressing their conviction which is backed up by stats, when speaking about a delusional self styled "universe boss."

I say no facting way the fake boss should be on any Caribbean T20 side. If he wants to continue playing in any geriatric league T20 then that is his decision.

Hell no...he does not qualify nor deserve selection.

But why the apprehension to speak one's mind, if it does not slander anyone?

Fact Gayle...he must hall his rass out of West Indies cricket.

And Philo Wallace, you are a pussy. Go lick your fur...you coward.

yikes! A bit harsh?

I was a supporter of Gayle going to the WC.
Now I can't see a place for him on that plane, in front of Rutherford, Shepherd, even K Lewis, Charles, or Fletch...
He's fallen way WAY behind. Time to move on.

So sports go...and better players have been 'discarded' in the past

Anything goes with West Indies selectors. Roger Harper can justify any selection or non-selection.

And yes, it's a "bit harsh." I despise that facter ever since his machinations to get on a plane to participate in the first IPL.

And I make no apologies for this.

We need to have at least one Yardi on the plane.

If not the UB, then who?

Well....


I think it was Prince Buster (correct me if I am wrong) who sang a song called Rough and Tough:

Who are you that I should be mindful of???



This Wallace person can't even buy the shoe laces on the Uni-Boss old boots.

To be fair to Wallace, he volunteered his place in the West Indies team to the up and coming Gayle at the beginning of the 2000 season. He expects Gayle to do likewise to one of the up and comings.

Very good.

But I really was not being unfair. There is a reason why Gayle has been so much more successful than the Philo Wallaces of this world.

Respectfully kind sir (bossman). If the standard is that only those who have matched or surpassed Gayle's accomplishments in this world can pass judgment on whether the UB deserves go to the T20 WC, no one in the current CWI setup qualifies to exclude Gayle from the squad smile
