Deciding cricket one-dayer will go ahead

7:02 am on 4 April 2009

The West Indies cricket captain Chris Gayle says the fifth and final one-day international against England in St Lucia on Saturday will go ahead.

Players threatened a boycott last week because of a row with the West Indies Cricket Board over salaries.

Gayle confirmed talks began today between the West Indies Players' Association and the Board.

England levelled the one-day series at 2-2 on Sunday thanks to Andrew Strauss' unbeaten 79.

Gayle says based on the response he's getting, things seem to be breaking down properly and so there will be a match.

The series is level at 2-all.
