Gayle to meet with WI cricket board

Jamaica, June 12: It seems dashing West Indies opening batsman Chris Gayle has finally come around to conciliation with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). After weeks of no communication between the two parties, which effectively led to Gayle's axing from the one-day squad, he has agreed to meet with the board.

The meeting could well open the way for Gayle to be included in the side for the upcoming Test series against India. He is likely to clear the air over his ignominious radio interview in which he made disparaging remarks about the board and criticised it against it over its indifferent attitude to his recovery from injury.

The WICB had hit back by dishing out a number of documents on their website which contradicted Gayle's allegations, following it up with a decision to bar the batsman from representing the regional team until he cleared up the issue with the Board.

Apart from Gayle, the meeting will include West Indies Player Association's (WIPA) president Dinanath Ramnarine, his WICB counterpart Dr Julian Hunte and chief executive officer Ernest Hilaire.

The Indian cricket team and the members of the home side also arrived in Jamaica on Tuesday for the fifth and final ODI at Sabina Park here on Thursday.
