Gibson, Sammy embrace Gayle return
HOVE, England, CMC – West Indies head coach Ottis Gibson and captain Darren Sammy today warmly greeted the news that talismanic Chris Gayle had made himself available for the limited overs leg of the West Indies tour of England.
Gayle, who has not played for the Caribbean side in a year because of a spat with the West Indies Cricket Board, announced Wednesday he was pulling out of his Somerset Twenty20 deal to make himself available for selection for the three One-Day Internationals and T20, starting here next month.
“It’s great to hear that Chris is available again. I’m sure the selectors will pick him, because he’s world-class,” Gibson said. (CMC)
