MS Dhoni singled out Chris Gayle as the dangerman in the West Indian camp as India take on the team from the Caribbean on June 11 in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 at the Oval in London.

"We have to take him out before he takes us out. The Gayle factor will always be there. He is a dangerous individual and we will have to get him early," he said.

Stating the match against the West Indies will be "interesting", the Indian captain said the team that adapts best to the conditions will prevail.

"You need some basic planning but you need to adapt along the way," Dhoni added.
