Gayle needs youngsters to uplift West Indies Team
"We can't rely on myself, Shiv and Sarwan to always keep getting the runs. There are going to be days when we don't get any and they have to step up," the West Indies skipper said.
"I think it's a mental thing. They are young and having some of the senior batsmen being out of form, these are things that the youngsters can't handle at the same time."
"There's a bit of pressure on them but it's big-time cricket and they have to step up to the plate."
"It has to come from within. We can talk all we want but they are out in the middle and they have to work it out and try and get the runs on the board."
About Vettori, whom the team found hard to manage "He has been playing for years. We've seen him in the Test matches and in the last couple of one-dayers so there's no excuse for batters saying Vettori is giving them problems," he said.
"He's the best bowler in the New Zealand team and he's a smart bowler as well but at the same time you have to learn how to combat that and learn how to get out of these situations as quickly as possible because it's going to cost us games."
