Gayle’s back!


KARACHI – Veteran opener Chris Gayle could make an appearance in West Indies colours for the first time in nearly two years against Sri Lanka next week after indicating here Monday he was leaving the Pakistan Super League and returning to the Caribbean for “international duties”.

The 41-year-old played two matches for Quetta Gladiators during the PSL, which bowled off here last weekend, hitting 39 in Saturday’s opener against Karachi Kings and 68 against Lahore Qalanders on Monday.

In a post-match interview following the nine-wicket defeat to Qalanders, Gayle announced he would be leaving to join up with West Indies.

“It is sad to leave because I wanted to play the full PSL,” said the former West Indies captain. (CMC)
