CHRISTOPHER?GAYLE has had injections  in his dodgy back and is almost certain to play  his 100th Test match before his adoring hometown fans in Jamaica next week.
Speaking at 3Ws Oval yesterday after the West Indies squad completed a camp, coach Ottis Gibson said that the 34-year-old left-handed opening batsman should be fit for the opening Test against  New Zealand which starts on Sunday.
“Chris has turned up, he is here, he is fit. We know the history with his back and those are things that  we have to manage. We are looking forward to getting  to Jamaica and getting him going.
“He was told he had to be here by June 1 and he arrived on time. Chris went to Germany to see a specialist and he had some injections in his back. The specialist told him he needs a couple of days rest and after that he should be able to fully fit to take part  in cricket,” Gibson said.
