Chris Gayle reveals long-term goal as West Indies star prepares to face England

Bowling coach Roddy Estwick has warned Ireland that West Indies will be playing at full throttle, when the two teams meet in today's one-off one-day worldwide.

The skies finally darkened around lunchtime, the rain began to fall, and the umpires bowed to the inevitable and called off the game without a ball being bowled.

The game was significant from Windies' point of view keeping in mind direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup.

Teams that do not gain direct entry will get another shot through a qualifying tournament.

West Indies captain Jason Holder signs autographs for young fans. "I'm sure they're not entertaining any idea of playing cricket here at the moment".

"We're at the stage where we are looking to turn a corner and qualify for the World Cup, whether we have to go through the qualifiers or qualify automatically".

"It won't be an embarrassment to play in the qualifiers".

"It's a real shame we got no play, but it's down to the umpires and referee in the end".

In effect, this would mean less money for expansion (mostly blue) states, and more money for non-expansion (mostly red) states. We should build on private-sector successes, not abandon them. "Because that's what people want", he said, according to ABC .

On the other hand, West Indies captain, Holder said that except Bravo and Gayle, he didn't think any other player was interested to play Test matches.

"Meantime, we have a young group of players challenging for places and hopefully they can come in and make their presence felt and feel more comfortable in the worldwide arena".

"It's just unfortunate the weather intervened but it was very wet out there and the last shower settled it". It is meant to allow for match-practice for the fledgling cricketing nation, and even the Test status may not change the current cricketing calendar rapidly.

West Indies now fly to England ahead of a one-off T20 worldwide on Saturday and a five-game ODI series.
