The West Indies giant batsman Chris Gayle will be featuring in Zimbabwe's domestic T20 competition. The event will be held at the end of November.
Gayle will play for the Matabeleland Tuskers in the T20 tournament from Nov. 25 to Dec. 4. "I am a cricketer and I want to play," Gayle said in a statement. "I would rather be playing for the West Indies but while that's not possible I want to use my time wisely, entertain some people and try to do some good."
Gayle is involved in a long row with the Windies board officials and has not played for his side since the World Cup in March. The board issued statements last week that the 31-year batsman would be considered for West Indies selection again only if he retracted statements about the board and their officials.
Gayle responded by asking the board to "state clearly" what he should apologise for.
