Kingston, Jamaica: Explosive West Indies batsman Chris Gayle who ran out of favour with his Board over public comments against it's decisions to not play him in international matches, is all set to meet West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) officials on Tuesday.
A breakthrough between WICB and the 31-year-old batsman may re-instate him in the side which has one ODI remaining against India which will be followed by a 3-Test series. "A meeting is scheduled for tomorrow (in Kingston) and we look forward to it," West Indies Players' Association (WIPA) President Dinanath Ramnarine said
Gayle who was dropped from the series against Pakistan had previously blamed WICB for an indifferent attitude towards him while he was recovering from an injury. Gayle had also trained his guns on coach Ottis Gibson and some of his coaching techniques. The Trinidad player however went on to score the highest runs in the Indian Premier League but vented his frustration against WICB again on Twitter a day after the tournament, saying he had received more warmth in India than in his actual home. In turn, WICB decided to not include him in the ODI series against India pending an explanation.
WICB president Dr Julian Hunte and chief executive officer, Ernest Hilaire alongwith the Indian team are scheduled to arrive in Jamaica on Tuesday as well.
