WICB REITERATES ITS POSITION RE CHRIS GAYLE
Monday 4th July 2011

The West Indies Cricket Board has noted the statement of July 1 by Chris Gayle.

 
The WICB is disappointed by the continued unprofessionalism being displayed by Mr. Gayle in dealing with this matter. It does not help that whilst matters are under discussion, Mr. Gayle, rather than expressing his views directly to the Board through one of the numerous channels open to him, chooses instead to make public his version of events and to create further antagonism.
 
The WICB does not wish to engage in a public debate with Mr. Gayle or his representatives but presents the following in an effort to ensure that the public has a balanced view of the situation.
 
The WICB has made every effort to resolve the issues with Mr. Gayle in an amicable manner by proposing meetings with him and his representatives.
 
The WICB reiterates its stated position, that there is a history of difficulty in communicating with and relating to Mr. Gayle and wishes to bring this matter to a resolution; but from his latest statement and his expressed views in the meetings with the WICB it would appear as though he is of the unshakeable view that he has conducted himself impeccably. The WICB insists that his conduct cannot simply be swept under the carpet as is the apparent desire of Mr. Gayle.
 
As previously communicated to Mr. Gayle, the WICB wishes to ensure that Mr. Gayle’s services remain available to West Indies cricket, but not at any cost and not on his inflexible take-it-or-leave it terms.
 
There must be mutual respect and a commitment to put West Indies cricket first. The WICB has written to Gayle making it clear that it is willing to seek a compromise resolution. Gayle’s position is that he has nothing to account for and expects to be automatically re-instated to the West Indies team whenever he decides that he is available.
 
Even though at a follow up meeting between Mr. Gayle and the Team Management, the Head Coach indicated what was required to assist in his return to the West Indies team, Gayle has refused and has demonstrated no inclination to compromise; instead he has been antagonistic and unrepentant in the entire process.
 
The Board will continue its efforts to meet with Mr. Gayle to resolve all outstanding issues.
