Gayle takes his big hitting to Nepal’s T20 league
JAMAICA: West Indies batting hero Chris Gayle has become the biggest international star to sign up for Nepal’s Twenty20 (T20) league.
The self-proclaimed king of T20 announced late Thursday that he will join Pokhara Rhinos in the Everest Premier League (EPL) that is preparing for its fourth season.
“Nepal get ready for the Gayle storm. It is gonna be dashing. See you soon Nepal,” he said in a video message on his Twitter account.
Gayle is leading a new crop of foreign imports including Aghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad and Sri Lankan batsman Upul Tharanga who will also play in the six-team tournament starting March 14.
EPL managing director Aamir Akhtar said it had taken months of negotiations to persuade Gayle to play in the Himalayan nation. – PTI
