Chris Gayle Makes IPL Return for Royal Challengers Bangalore Read more at Suite101: Chris Gayle Makes IPL Return for Royal Challengers Bangalore | Su
Big-hitting West Indian opening batsman Chris Gayle has been signed on by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 cricket tournament. Gayle, who didn't have takers during the IPL 2011 auctions held earlier this year, made the cut after one of RCB's international signings - Australian seamer Dirk Nannes - sustained an injury. Gayle had represented the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the earlier editions of the IPL. KKR had not retained Gayle for the next three-year period, bringing him back on the auction table but none of the 10 franchises in the league showed interest in the former West Indies captain.
