Gayle, who collected 424 runs at a mean of 106 in 4 fits in opposition to match favourites England earlier this yr, has arrived within the United Kingdom for his fifth and ultimate World Cup.

"Youngsters coming at my head - it's not as easy as it was like one time before. I was quicker then. But they'll be weary. They know what the Universe Boss is capable of. I'm sure they will have it in the back of their mind, 'Hey, this is the most dangerous batsman they've ever seen in cricket," Gayle informed cricket.com.au.

Asked if his warring parties are nonetheless frightened of him, Gayle stated: "Can't you tell? You pass ask them. Go ask them on digicam. They're going to mention, no, they are no longer scared. But you ask them off the digicam, they going to mention, 'Yeah, he's the man. He's the man.' They're going to mention, 'he's the man.'

"But they may not say it (on digicam), they may not be frank and prematurely and say, 'Listen to me directly up, Chris Gayle is the man.

"But I'm enjoying it. I'm always enjoying the battle against fast bowlers, it's good. Sometimes those things actually give you extra drive as a batter. When you have a battle, I like those challenges."

Ahead of the World Cup, Gayle, who turns 40 in September, scored 490 runs in 13 innings for Kings XI Punjab within the IPL and is assured of matching the most productive in industry all over the showpiece.


"I am still in good nick. I had a not-so-bad IPL, coming after the home series against England," he stated.


"The benefit of it is I have been playing cricket. It's vital for me to keep playing and get some video games under my belt and are available here to the United Kingdom and start with a couple of warm-up video games as neatly to peer where you are at.


"It's a long match. For me individually I just have to monitor it as much as conceivable and just get the mindset proper."


West Indies will open their campaign in opposition to Pakistan on May 31 at Trent Bridge.
