West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle has revealed on Friday that he had come through three car crashes in quick succession.
According to news.com.au, the big-hitting 34-year-old batsman, who is currently nursing a hamstring injury, said the triple misfortune had befallen him since he returned from the tour of India three weeks ago.

Gayle’s hamstring injury forced him to miss West Indies’ ongoing tour of New Zealand, including the One-Day International (ODI) series starting later this month, the report said. A 15-man West Indies squad named on Friday for the five-game series doesn’t feature explosive opener Gayle or world-class all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who is still recovering from a leg injury, the report added.
A West Indies Cricket Board statement said the pair could yet be considered for the two Twenty20 internationals in January.
