- He called Ramnaresh Sarwan "a snake" and said he is "evil, wicked"
West Indies batsman Chris Gayle tore into former teammate Ramnaresh Sarwan, saying he was a "snake" and asking when he would "stop stabbing people in the back". In a series of YouTube videos, Gayle talks about his ouster from the Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League. The hard-hitting batsman was released by the Tallawahs this year, and he has now joined St Lucia Zouks. Gayle accused Sarwan of being behind his exit from the Tallawahs. Gayle blamed the former middle-order batsman of being "in the ears" of the Jamaica Tallawahs owner and influencing their decision to release him from the franchise.
"Right now, Sarwan, you are worse than the coronavirus right now," Gayle said in a scathing statement.
"What transpired with the Tallawahs, I know you have a big part to play in this," the left-handed batsman said. "Because you and the owner are like this," Gayle adds, crossing his fingers to indicate a tight bond.
"You claim we are friends, but yet still, you don't pick up the phone and call.
"Sarwan, you were the one at my last birthday party here in Jamaica, on the platform giving a big speech on how far we have come," Gayle said.
"Sarwan, you are a snake," he said.
"You're so vindictive, you are still immature, you are still stabbing people in the back," Gayle fumed.
"When are you going to change, Sarwan? When are you planning to change?" he said.

Gayle went on to recall an anecdote from 1996, when the two were teammates for West Indies Under-19.
"We were roommates, we shared the same room," he said.
"You allowed the management staff to send me home from Barbados. I will never forget that. I forgive, but I will never forget," Gayle said.
"You went and told the management team that you can't sleep because Chris Gayle watches TV too late in the night. That's what I got sent home for," Gayle said.
"In everybody's eyes, you act like you are this saint, you are this good person. Sarwan, you're evil. You're wicked. You're poison," Gayle said.
