After his outburst on YouTube, the CPL committee decided not to constitute a hearing against Chris Gayle who said things about his former team.
The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) committee has received a formal complaint which talked about the alleged breaches of the Tournament Rules & Regulations done by Chris Gayle. This issue arose after the West Indies player posted three videos on his YouTube page which showed him ranting about the Jamaica Tallawahs, his former team.
Despite some comments which said that Gayle’s statements were damaging to the CPL tournament and its brand, the CPL committee considered the matter closed as Gayle had accepted his fault. As the player gave his assurance to act in good faith, the CPL decided that a Tribunal will no longer be necessary.
Sharing his side, Gayle said, ‘Recently, I posted three videos on my personal YouTube channel, where I addressed the reasons for my departure from the Jamaica Tallawahs franchise ahead of the 2020 CPL tournament.

He also said that it was not his intention to damage the tournament as he had earned lots of opportunities because of it. Gayle also said that he is now focused on another great season where he’ll play for the St Lucia Zouks franchise. To know more about CPL, check out Betwala.
