Chris Gayle will play no part for dolphins, in the Miway t20 challenge in South Africa, as his groin injury persists.
Gayle left South Africa on Sunday for Trinidad and Tobago, where he will attend the funeral of his former West Indies team-mate Runako Morton, who died in a car accident last week.
It has been reported that, Gayle was disappointed at not playing for the dolphins, since the injury has not healed quickly enough to allow him to play.
He enjoyed his short stay in Durban, and looks forward to playing for the dolphins in the future.
Gayle had picked up a grade two groin strains, while playing for Barisal burners in the Bangladesh premier league, and underwent rehabilitation in Durban in the hope that, he would be able to play in the latter stages of dolphins’ campaign.
He will, however, be ready in time for the start of the IPL on April 4th, in which he will play for royal challengers Bangalore.
