Chris Gayle says he will attempt to make a return to cricket in the West Indies' regional 50 competition, which begins at the end of this month.

The explosive Jamaica and West Indies batsman made the statement after he pulled out of South Africa’s domestic Twenty20 tournament.

Gayle pulled out of that tournament after failing to recover from injury.

Gayle was scheduled to represent the Dolphins.

This is the second time Gayle has withdrawn from Dolphins, after a similar situation two seasons ago.

Gayle originally signed with Dolphins for the 2011-2012 tournament but did not play a game.

On that occasion, he arrived in South Africa carrying an injury, received treatment in Durban and then left when it became apparent that he would not recover in time.

This time, Gayle's participation was thrown into doubt when he tore his hamstring during a One-Day International game against India in November.

He was initially expected to be out of action for up to five weeks, but has still not returned to full fitness.
