West Indies‘ opening batsman Chris Gayle has been forced to pull out of South Africa’s domestic Ram Slam Twenty20 (T20) tournament because he would not recover in time from a torn hamstring that occurred during an One-Day International (ODI) against India in November.
Gayle has announced that he would not be travelling to Durban but instead would focus on making a return for West Indies’ regional 50-over competition, which begins at the end of January.
Actually, this is the second time Gayle has withdrawn from the South African side, Dolphins, after a similar situation two seasons ago. Gayle took no part in their ongoing series against New Zealand and has also been ruled out of the T20I series.
