CRICKET: Bravo confirms no Gayle for Kiwi T20 internationals

Star West Indies batsman Chris Gayle won't be seen on the cricket tour of New Zealand.

Captain Dwayne Bravo put an end to speculation around the powerful Jamaican opener by confirming he would miss the tour-ending Twenty20 internationals in Auckland on January 11 and Wellington on January 15.

Coach Ottis Gibson said after the Hamilton test that it was hoped Gayle would return for the Twenty20s as he recovers in Sydney from a hamstring injury, but that has now changed.

Gayle suffered the hamstring tear in India in November and was originally expected to be sidelined for 4 to 5 weeks.

He raised hopes of a return for the New Zealand tour last month

when he appeared in Sydney and was photographed batting in the nets.
