Colombo: Sep 14, 2012
The left-hander, who smashed a career-best 333 in the opening Test at Galle in 2010, said he was eagerly looking forward to the tournament starting in Sri Lanka next Tuesday.
"To get that triple-century was great for me. I have some happy memories here in Sri Lanka," Gayle, 32, was quoted as saying in a West Indies Cricket Board press release on Thursday.
"I am hoping to use that as a booster to bigger and better things during the tournament. We know what we're about. We know what we are here for."
The West Indies are drawn with Australia and Ireland in Group B of the preliminary league, with the top two teams advancing to the Super Eights round.
