Chris Gayle is likely to get punishment for his recent outburst against Ramnaresh Sarwan as announced as reported by the Cricket West Indies (CWI).
Cricket West Indies Chief Ricky Skerritt has said that Gayle’s actions will be assessed and also hoped that it doesn’t end his “Outstanding carrier”.
The 40-year-old Gayle who has been roped in by St Lucia Zouks for the upcoming season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) accused Sarwan of being “Worse than Coronavirus”, also accused him of plotting his exit from his previous CPL team Jamaica Tallawahs.
Reacting on the incident, Ricky Skerritt followed up by saying that It is an ‘Interpersonal battle’ and cited that he doesn’t expect things to settle done easily.
“I’m sure there is some kind of discussion taking place at the moment between Chris and the CPL because the CPL has rules which will come into view here because Chris is signed into a franchise team,” Skerrit was quoted as saying by Jamaica-Gleaner.
“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 brought to an end by this event,” he added.
The swashbuckling opener had said Ramnaresh Sarwan was the one responsible for his exit from Jamaica Tallawahs as the later wanted to take full control of the franchise.
Chris Gayle passed the statement on his Youtube channel “Sarwan, you are worse than coronavirus right now”
“What happened with Tallawahs, you have a big part to play in this along with owner as you both are very close”.
Stating that it is an unfortunate incident, Skerritt further said “It’s certainly not something that I enjoyed looking at or reading about. Personally, I think that was unfortunate, but the process will have to take its course and that process will get triggered because he is a contracted player in the CPL within the West Indies league.”
