Kathmandu, January 30
West Indies star batsman Chris Gayle is coming to Nepal to play a few T20 cricket tournaments in this edition of the Everest Premier League.
Gayle will play as a member of the Pokhara Rhinos, the team announced on Thursday amidst a press conference. The team’s owner Deepa Agrawal said her team contracted Gayle owing to the success of the league, adding all Nepali cricket fans would be happy with the news.
The team’s managing director Aamir Akhtar said it took the team members around six months to convince Gayle about the offer.
The number of matches to be played by the veteran has not been decided yet. “I also need to play the IPL, and the duration of my stay in Nepal will be decided accordingly,” he has reportedly told the team.
