When asked about Gayle`s comment he replied,
“It’s a challenge for everybody, we have people who hit the ball a long way. It’s exciting for me, I can put my game plans into place, use my variations and being clever with what you bowl. I`m looking forward to it.”
Furthermore, Rashid said that
“there are obviously some concerns but you have to believe in yourself, you got to have confidence. You have to go out and stick to your strengths and be confident that you can get him out. He is also human. We are all human and make mistakes. So, it takes one ball for him to make a mistake and get out. It’s that kind of mindset that we need.”
