Gayle still vex about not being able to represent Yard team. He might have called it quits from WI cricket after the tournament if the Tallawahs had kept him.

He makes bad judgement calls every now and then, but he has always been a straightforward person. His on-field performances have been declining for a few years now, so it won't be surprising if he retires soon - especially if there is no IPL this year.

So who Russell playing with this year CPL?

Tallawahs may just have the weakest line up this year
