Chris Gayle likely to get punished for outburst against Sarwan
President of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Ricky Skerritt has strongly hinted that some action is likely to be taken against veteran batsman Chris Gayle, following his recent outburst against former teammate Ramnaresh Sarwan.
The 40-year-old Gayle, who was signed by St Lucia Zouks for the 2020 season of the Caribbean Premier League, called his former teammate "worse than coronavirus", accusing the Guyanese of plotting his exit from CPL outfit Jamaica Tallawahs.
"Sarwan, you are worse than the coronavirus right now," Gayle had said in a video uploaded on his YouTube channel. "What transpired with the Tallawahs, you have a big part to play because you and the owner are like this (very close)."
Gayle referred to Sarwan as a ‘snake’ and described the former batsman as ‘worse than the coronavirus’. Sarwan has denied any involvement in the non-renewal of Gayle’s Tallawah’s contract and insisted the assertions made against him were false.
