Caribbean legend Chris Gayle recently cut short his Mzansi Super League (MSL) and abruptly announced a short break from cricket duties to plan his future career accordingly. However, Gayle’s decision to step away from the game temporarily has not gone down too well with the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) authorities.
“I don't even know how my name reached the BPL, but I have been drafted in a team and I don't even know how that happened,” Gayle had told reporters. In response, Bangladesh T20 team Chattogram Challengers have threatened legal action against the star player. Challengers team director Jalal Yunus approached the country’s cricket board to ensure Gayle’s participation in the tournament.
"His agent confirmed Chris was aware about it. Now if he does not come, we will seek a player outside the draft. But I feel (Bangladesh Cricket Board) BCB should take action in such cases to keep discipline,” Yunus said.
