Gayle set to miss Bellerive Oval clash
West Indies captain Chris Gayle will miss the Retravision Warriors KFC Big Bash game at the Bellerive Oval against the Tasmian Tigers tomorrow night through injury.
Gayle injured a side muscle during his sides 29 run defeat against the West End Redbacks at the WACA. Despite the injury Gayle still managed to score 40 runs from just 16 balls before retiring hurt.
Gayle returned to the game later in the innings but he was clearly hampered by his injury and only managed to score 4 more runs before being dismissed.
The injury was thought to be more serious and the Warriors were expecting Gayle to miss the rest of the KFC Big Bash. Gayle had a scan yesterday and it revealed the muscle strain was less serious then first thought.
