“Sarwan, you’re a snake. You’re wicked, you’re evil, you’re poison.”
West Indies legend Chris Gayle did not hold back as he criticised former Windies team-mate and captain Ramnaresh Sarwan in a remarkable 15-minute video on YouTube.
Batsman Gayle, 40, was released by Jamaica Tallawahs last week before the next edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) – and he is in no doubt that assistant coach Sarwan was to blame.
“What transpired with the Tallawahs, you had a big part to play,” said Gayle, who is the leading run-scorer in Twenty20 international history.
“You know, Sarwan, you’re not the most loved person in the Caribbean. No-one in your own country loves you.
“You’re so vindictive. You’re still immature, still stabbing people in the back.”
Gayle led the Tallahwahs to the CPL title in 2013 and 2016 and, after a spell with St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, returned to the franchise last year.
Despite scoring 116 in his second game, he managed only 243 runs in 10 innings as the Tallawahs finished bottom of the table.https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/52455117
