West Indies Cricketer, Chris Gayle, is lashing out at Guyanese cricketer Ramnaresh Sarwan for his recent dismissal from the Jamaica Tallawahs Team.
In a YouTube Video, Chris Gayle vehemently renounced his friendship with Sarwan, saying that they will be practicing social distancing from now, but not just six feet – from miles.
According to Chris Gayle, the reason that Sarwan acted in removing him from the Jamaica Tallawahs has its roots in an incident which occurred some time in the past. At that time, Sarwan, who was assistant coach, wanted to become the head coach. However, Gayle opposed this move and openly told Sarwan that he was not suitable to become head coach, “not knowing that that was eating him out.”
Chris Gayle has asserted that his dismissal from the Jamaica Tallawahs was influenced by team mate Ramnaresh Sarwan. He says he knows that Sarwan was involved in the conspiracy since he wields a lot of influence in the circles of the owner of the Jamaica Tallawahs – Kris Persaud.
During a recent match against the Guyana Amazon Warriors in Guyana, South America, Chris Gayle was invited to a social outreach programme by Guyana Government Officials which was apparently interpreted by the opposition PPP/C as a political endorsement.
Chris Gayle subsequently came on media to outright refute all such allegations and made it clear that he attended the social outreach event “under the neutral banner of sports.”
However, Gayle’s desperate attempt to clear his name obviously fell on deaf ears as a PPP/C politician went as far as accusing the cricketer of accepting a sum of money from the APNU/AFC government. Further, leader of the opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo, has reportedly said that Chris Gayle, as a result of attending the event, has gone into his “bad books.”
