Chris Gayle among Windies trio to face auction

Chris Gayle

LAHORE, Pakistan:(CMC)

West Indies Twenty20 stars Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, and Carlos Brathwaite are among 500 players who will be up for selection at the Pakistan Premier League draft set for tomorrow.

The left-handed Gayle, one of the most sought-after batsmen in the game's shortest format, was released by Karachi Kings following the conclusion of the last PSL season.

He managed a mere 160 runs from nine innings last season with the Kings after representing Lahore Qalanders in the 2016 inaugural tournament.

Bravo, meanwhile, was forced to opt out of his commitment to Qalanders last season after picking up an injury during the Australia Big Bash.


Brathwaite out


Brathwaite had been down to represent Quetta Gladiators but missed out through domestic commitments in the Caribbean.

The trio is widely viewed as precious commodities on the T20 circuit and is expected to quickly snapped up in the draft.

West Indies players like Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, and Darren Sammy have been retained by their respective franchises.

Sammy took the spotlight last season when he captained Peshawar Zalmi to the capture of the PSL title.

The new season will feature 34 matches and is set to bowl off early next year. The schedule is yet to be released.

Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.
