West Indies Cricket Board delighted with Gayle's commitment
St Johns (West Indies), May 12(ANI): The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has said they are pleased with opening batsman Chris Gayle's commitment and dedication to make a comeback in the national team.
Gayle declared last week he would pull out of his contract with English county Somerset in order to make himself available for the limited overs phase of West Indies' tour of England, and in 'all forms of cricket' in the future.
"Directors of the West Indies Cricket Board recently met by teleconference and are pleased that consistent with his previous commitment. Mr. Chris Gayle has made himself available for selection to the West Indies team," The Daily Telegraph quoted a WICB statement, as saying.
The 32-year-old left-hander has not played for the West Indies in over a year following a dispute with the WICB, arising from a controversial interview he gave to a Jamaican radio station in the wake of last year's World Cup.
Since then, Gayle has played only in different Twenty20 leagues on the international circuit and is currently playing in the Indian Premier League for Royal Challengers Bangalore. (ANI)
