St Kitts and Nevis Patriots star batsman Chris Gayle has revealed that a finger injury he received during Wednesday’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) encounter against the Jamaica Tallawahs was cause for any concern.
Gayle damaged his hand while on fielding duty against the Tallawahs, who put 178 on the board before managing to secure a comfortable 47-run victory, for a third straight win of the competition.
The injury occurred early in the innings and Gayle spent most of the rest of it off the field but did return to make 24 from 25 balls when the Patriots took the field. With just a quick turnaround before the next set of games, Gayle has insisted the injury is not cause for further concern.
“It’s a little busted but it nothing too serious from my side. Thank God it’s not actually fractured,” Gayle said.
“We have a couple days off before there is a quick turnaround and we will be ready to play in St Lucia,” he added.
Gayle will look to get the Patriots back to winning ways after losing two of the first three matches. (SportsMax)
