West Indies‘ swashbuckling batsman Chris Gayle has been forced to put his sex life on hold. The left-handed dazzling batsman, who is a star attraction in the cash rich Indian Premier League (IPL) as well as many other T2o leagues around the world, has underwent surgery. Gayle will be out of action at least till December, but there are chances that he may feature in the Australian Big Bash League (BBL). But, according to a report late in July, Gayle’s management had hinted that the cricketer would be back into the action in October itself, provided everything happens on time and the cricketer responds to the treatment.

Tom Moody, the director of cricket at Melbourne Renegades, the BBL team which Gayle plays for, is confident that the cricketer will be back in action soon. “We were aware that that was on the cards … and the timing of it, that it was going to fit into the Big Bash. We’ve got 100 per cent confidence he’ll be fine,” Moody was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.

Gayle, who is now going through the recovery period, sounds pretty chuffed up about it.


“I’ve seen it in the IPL year-in, year-out. We know that he’s incredibly destructive and he’s box-office when he’s off and running. We’re just very hopeful that he turns it on this year for the Renegades,” Moody, who is also the coach of IPL side Sunrisers Hyderabad, added.
