After more than a year, the Jamaican opener got a place in the national side for the one-off Twenty20 worldwide against India. They will be led by Carlos Brathwaite, the hero of West Indies' World T20 final win against England previous year. Gayle came into the squad in place of Lendl Simmons who did not performed up to the expectations in their last T20 series 3-matches against Afghanistan. "He will get the chance to play on his home ground and against a top-quality Indian team", said Courtney Browne, Cricket West Indies' chairman of selectors. Apart from Gayle, other prolific performers in the shortest format, namely Kieron Pollard, Marlon Samuels, Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree have also returned to the squad.

Gayle's inclusion means the journey is not over for the left-handed batsman who remains a hot property in the T20 format.

After helping his side win the tournament for the record second time, the burly and explosive batsman had indicated that he might have played his last match for West Indies, as the issues between the players and the formerly-named West Indies Cricket Board (now Cricket West Indies) were at their lowest point.
