Chris Gayle has been the most sort after individual from the global front in franchise cricket. The Jamaican monster has simply revolutionized the way in which T20 cricket is played across the globe. Gayle has made his presence felt in all the cash-rich leagues with his unparalleled batting talent and it’s no surprise that all teams try their level best to have Gayle on board.
2016 has been a really busy year so far for the “Universe Boss”. Gayle began his year by featuring for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League Down Under. That was soon followed by a short stint for the Lahore franchise in the Pakistan Super League held in UAE. Gayle then began his run in the World T20 in India with a swashbuckling ton against England at Mumbai. The southpaw was a part of the World T20 victorious West Indies side.
With the IPL underway, Gayle was present for the Royal Challengers Bangalore and opened alongside Indian batting icon Virat Kohli. Currently, Gayle’s stint with Somerset in the Natwest T20 blast has just come to an end. In his recent chat with a radio station, Gayle stated that his body needed a break after such a hectic schedule.
“The mind is willing but the body says ‘you’ve got to take a break’. There is too much stiffness in this body at this time,” Gayle said. “But we’ll see how well I can actually manage that, how long I can actually last and go on to entertain the fans around the world.”I’m looking forward to heading back home now. It’s been a wonderful hospitality and atmosphere.” “Apart from the first game which was very, very cold – that was the only game I didn’t really get a score. The weather played its part but we have no control over that.”
Gayle stated that he would always cherish his stint with Somerset. “Hopefully, the guys make it to the final and we can actually get a chance to get a trophy.”Somerset will always have a place in my heart.”I like all the fans interacting, even when the ball just trickles to me and I pick it up, they cheer for that. It’s fantastic when you have that sort of impact on people.”
