The West Cricket Board announced on Wednesday that Captain Chris Gayle will be leaving the tour of Australia to return to Jamaica, to be with his mother who is unwell. Team Manager Joel Garner indicated that Gayle’s mother was admitted to hospital in Jamaica and the player was granted time off to be with her.
Gayle will leave from Brisbane on Wednesday afternoon and will miss the four-day first-class match against Queensland Bulls at the Allan Border Field, which starts on Wednesday at 10 am (8 pm Tuesday Eastern Caribbean Time/7 pm Jamaica Time). Vice Captain Denesh Ramdin will lead the team in Gayle’s absence.
“The management and players in the team as well as the WICB are with Chris and his family at this time. We also want to wish his mother a speedy recovery,” Garner said.
The West Indies will play three Tests on the tour. The first Test will be at the Gabba in Brisbane on November 26-30; the second Test will be at the Adelaide Oval on December 4-8; and the third Test at the WACA Ground in Perth on December 16-20.
