What more does he expect from Gayle in the coming matches and pat came the reply, “Bat 15 overs for me, thats what I need from him, once you bat 15 overs we are someway near to the target (either) we are setting or chasing.” When asked whether Gayle conceals the other weaknesses in the side, Simmons said, “No. All teams have weaknesses but all teams have strengths too. If we use our strengths, that negates your weakness, thats how you win games, all teams have weaknesses, its up to other people to explore our weakness like we will explore theirs.” On comparing Gayle with West Indies legends, Simmons said he would “put him” with Vivian Richards because Richards “used to go out there” and destroy attacks.
