Gayle quits as captain

Port-of-Spain: Chris Gayle has resigned as captain of the West Indies cricket team, according to WICB CEO Donald Peters, who is also speculated to have been sent on leave, indicating uncertain times for the Board ahead of the Champions Trophy.

“CEO Dr Donald Peters confirmed that West Indies captain Chris Gayle had indeed formally tendered his resignation as skipper on Saturday night by letter,” the Trinidad Express reported on Tuesday.

“He, however, did not give details as to Gayle’s reasons,” it added.

Gayle was reportedly unhappy with the West Indies Cricket Board’s (WICB) selection policy and voiced concerns over the regional selectors’ choices in the recent ODI series against Australia after the West Indies had surrendered the decisive third match.

Deyal, on his part, said, “I have asked the Board to clarify it, and the Board hasn’t said anything. Nobody has confirmed or denied it. There is no reason (given for dismissal). One would think there must be, but I was never asked to respond (to any such issue).” — PTI
