CRICKET: Chris Gayle out of second Test against Bangladesh
West Indies will be without explosive Jamaican opener Chris Gayle for the second and final Test against Bangladesh starting on Saturday at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in St Lucia.
The left-hander was not named in the 13-man squad, with Guyana left-hander Leon Johnson called up as a replacement.
A West Indies Cricket Board release said Gayle received permission to deal with a personal matter.
Johnson, meanwhile, is yet to play a Test despite being on the verge of the squad in recent times.
His inclusion is the only change to the squad from the first Test.
West Indies won the first Test by 10 wickets in St Vincent.
Members of the squad are Denesh Ramdin (Captain), Sulieman Benn, Jermaine Blackwood, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shiv Chanderpaul, Kirk Edwards, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Leon Johnson, Kemar Roach, Shane Shillingford, Jerome Taylor.
