Gayle said that only a few countries are playing regular Test cricket, which is not good for the game.

West Indies player Chris Gayle expressed his concerns over Test cricket and urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to help the lower-ranked teams play red-ball cricket regularly.

Gayle said that only a few countries are playing regular Test cricket, which is not good for the game. Gayle has played 103 Tests for West Indies, scoring 7214 runs at an average of 42.18.

The southpaw further said that India, England, and Australia get regular opportunities to play Test cricket, which is a matter of concern.

While talking on TalkSport radio, Gayle opened up about the opportunities the West Indies team and other teams get to play the longest format of the game.

“Test cricket is in a bit of trouble. I’m worried more about the lower-ranked teams. They are not getting support from the ICC. Test cricket is always about England, India, and Australia. We don’t get enough chances. ICC needs to look into that,” he said.
