Chris Gayle, the cricketer who has had a very outstanding career is likely to be penalized after his recent outburst against Ramnaresh Sarwan, the Cricket West Indies (CWI) chief Ricky Skerritt said. We hope that it won’t end the career of the 40-year-old who is a big-hitter, he gave so much to the sport.
Gayle who was signed by St Lucia Zouks for the 2020 season of the Caribbean Premier League, accused the Guyanese of plotting his exit from Jamaica Tallawahs CPL outfit and said his former teammate was “worse than covid-19”.
Skerritt said he doesn’t expect the controversy to die down easily even though it is an “interpersonal battle”.
He feels sure that there is some kind of discussion taking place at the moment between Gayle and the CPL because the CPL has rules which will come into view here, as Chris is signed into a franchise team at this time.
However, he still hopes it doesn’t become a world matter in terms of the career of Mr. Gayle, because he has been having a very outstanding career and he really wouldn’t want to see it brought to an end because of this event.
Gayle claimed that Sarwan was behind his ouster as the former middle-order batsman was interested to take control of the franchise. These controversies have been a part of modern sports and the gentleman’s game, Cricket is no exception and many cricketers have made comments that have caused them to be penalized before.
“Sarwan, you are worse than the coronavirus right now,” Gayle made this comment in a video and then he uploaded it on his YouTube channel for the world to see.
He also said “What transpired with the Tallawahs, you have a big part to play because you and the owner are like this (very close).”
Skerritt does not enjoyed looking at or reading about Gayles current situation, he thinks it was unfortunate, but the process will have to take its course and that process will get triggered because Gayle is a contracted player in the CPL within the West Indies league.
Whenever, a player is contracted to a franchise or a club or to Cricket West Indies, that kind of behavior normally brings contracts into a level of disrepute.
