Pietersen wants Gayle back for Windies
07:56 AEST Thu May 24 2012

England's Kevin Pietersen said it would be great for the game if West Indies star batsman Chris Gayle returned for the second Test at Trent Bridge starting on Friday.

Gayle, one of the world's most aggressive openers, has not played international cricket for more than a year because of a dispute with the West Indies Cricket Board.

The left-hander was not selected for the Test squad and, in his absence, the West Indies suffered a five-wicket defeat in the first of a three-match series at Lord's on Monday.

Gayle, who said recently he was making himself available again for international duty, had been expected to return in the subsequent one-day series against England.

But with his commitments in the Indian Premier League (IPL) ending after the elimination of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the former West Indies captain could yet feature in the Tests against England.

West Indies have suffered a series of top-order collapses during Gayle's international exile, including in both innings at Lord's.

Fellow attacking batsman Pietersen, who knows Gayle well from their time together in the IPL, said: "He's a superstar and he is one of my real good mates in cricket. I love the way he plays.

"It will be brilliant for the game if he comes back to play this Test match. He is an entertainer. People want to watch entertainers. They don't want to watch people blocking the ball."
