The outburst of Chris Gayle against the Jamaica Tallawahs may earn him a sanction from the Caribbean Premier League.
Last month, Chris Gayle released a video which depicted an outburst of emotions against his former CPL team which was the Jamaica Tallawahs. In that video, he described Tallawahs’ assistant coach Ramnaresh Sarwan as a snake, worse than the coronavirus, and as a very deceitful and very disrespectful person.
With such behaviour shown, Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt stated his opinion by saying that Gayle may be sanctioned by the CPL for what he did. As per Skerritt, such actions may have brought disrepute to the league because what Gayle did was something that contracted players cannot do.
The management of the Tallawahs released a statement which called Gayle’s actions a business move. In line with the management’s statement, Sarwan described Gayle’s allegations to be false and scandalous. Meanwhile, the CPL shared no comment as to what the board thinks of the West Indies player.
In relation to the happenings, Skerritt hopes that the outburst would be a reason to have Gayle’s career end. He says, ‘I hope it doesn’t become a world matter in terms of the career of Mr Gayle because it’s been a very outstanding career and I really wouldn’t want to see it being brought to an end by this event’.
Gayle, after being released from the Jamaica Tallawahs, has been signed up by the St Lucia Zouks for the next season of the CPL. To learn more about this cricket league, check out Betwala.
