Gayle makes peace with Windies Board

6:40 am on 4 May 2012

The West Indies senior opening batsman Chris Gayle has made peace with his country's Cricket Board and declared himself available for international play again after a year-long dispute.

Gayle has scrapped his deal with the English county Somerset to make himself available for his country, 12 months after launching a verbal attack on the West Indies Board in a radio interview.

The 32 year old left hander, currently playing for Bangalore in the Indian Premier League, won't be involved in the West Indies 3-test series against England starting in a fortnight, but he's hoping to be part of the one dayers and a Twenty20 international following the tests.
