    Bolt good enough to play cricket: Gayle

    Star WI batsman backs Olympic champion’s fast bowling dream

    By IPL staff
    Mumbai 13 September 2012

    Chris Gayle has the ability to make even the best of bowlers look pedestrian when he wields his mighty willow. So, when the big-hitter from the Caribbean rates someone good enough to get the better of him, you have to take note of it. Gayle feels world’s fastest man and fellow Jamaican, Usain Bolt, possesses the bowling skills required to play professional cricket.

    Bolt, a six-time Olympic gold medallist, recently expressed his desire to enter cricket and sought a team in the IPL. Australia’s legendary leg-spinner, Shane Warne, also got in touch with Bolt and asked him to join the Melbourne Stars of the Big Bash League, which starts in December.

    Commenting on Bolt’s credentials as a fast bowler, Gayle said, "He wouldn't embarrass himself. In a charity game he actually played against me and almost knocked my head off with a good competitive bouncer,"

    "It is nothing to take lightly. I don't see anything wrong," Gayle told reporters during West Indies’ first practice session in Sri Lanka ahead of the 2012 ICC World Twenty20.

    Bolt, who played cricket and football in Jamaica as a kid, also said that he wants a trial with Manchester United Football Club.
