Injured Gayle to return home


VISAKHAPATNAM, India – Opener Chris Gayle has been ruled out of the remainder of the West Indies’ tour of India and the subsequent three Tests against New Zealand due to a hamstring injury.

 West Indies team physiotherapist C.J. Clark confirmed that Gayle tore his hamstring during the first One-day International on Thursday at the Nehru Stadium in the Indian south-western city of Kochi.

“Chris will need three to four weeks to recover from this injury, and he is returning to the Caribbean for injury management and subsequent physical rehabilitation,” said Clark.

“He will be assessed continuously over the period with a view for him to be fit for the five ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals in New Zealand.”

No player will replace Gayle in the 15-member squad for the last two ODIs in India, but the Selection Panel of the West Indies Cricket Board has identified Kraigg Brathwaite to take his place for the Tests in New Zealand next month.
