ESPN CRICINFO – The WICB has decided to discontinue pursuing a disciplinary charge against Chris Gayle over comments he made in January about West Indies’ selection policy.

On January 12, Gayle slammed the Clive Lloyd-led selection panel for dropping the pair of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard from West Indies’ World Cup squad, calling the move “ridiculous”.

Gayle’s outburst subsequently earned him a Rule 9 charge of the WICB’s Code of Conduct, which states that “players and team officials shall not make public or media comment which is detrimental to the interests of the game”.

However, the code also states that such a charge must be laid against an offender within 10 days of the alleged commission of the offence. The WICB’s disciplinary committee ruled that since Gayle had been reprimanded outside the required time frame, it would drop the charge.

A WICB media release confirmed that the board had “accepted the intimation of the Disciplinary Committee that the charge should be discontinued” and said Gayle had been accordingly notified about the same.

  1. Martin Luther King defied the Establishment and its meant-to-be-intimidating laws and went on to loudly proclaim in words and actions that the cowardice of the leaders led them to draft laws that were designed to keep oppressed people silent. Those who are brave will say what needs to be said no matter how that might be taken by the cowards who hide behind manufactured rules and regulations that are meant to keep people silent! Too many Saint Lucians are afraid to openly stand up against injustices, mediocrities and dumb rules that are meant to keep people silent, and as a result, leaders do crap but remain shielded from consequences by the silence of "legally" subdued voices!

  3. I think Clive and his packs should do the job they are being to do and in effect not doing a good one.
    It is mere jealousy that they were not privileged to all of the perks and the success that Chris Gayle and the others are basking in. What's wrong in saying what you know is not good for a team. Same slavery master mind-set. Most of the players they took decisions against, were in the IPL and performed better than any other players. Playing all your life for the Windies will not sustain any cricketer in the long run. Wherever they are being paid handsomely go for it.
    Only now the guys can properly take care of their families.
