Chris Gayle to play Twenty20 for someone

He's richer than the Fonz, you know

In a not-entirely-surprising move, Chris Gayle has signed to play for Somerset in next season’s Twenty20 Cup.

Gayle’s ‘people’ released a statement quoting him as saying:

“I’m delighted to be heading to [insert name of cricket team]. Hopefully I can make a key contribution to their T20 campaign this year.”

Somerset’s director of cricket, Brian Rose, said that Gayle would get into any world T20 XI.

Low-level cricket media nonentity, King Cricket, said that Gayle would only play for a world XI if he was happy with the pay. Otherwise he’d be playing for a Groningen XI that weekend in the Netherlands Super Twenty20 Cup of Superness, because they’d put together a very competitive financial package.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. After the misfortune of having had Chris Gayle in the state side in a previous season, it was very satisfying to see the local team get him out in dubious circumstances. Dubious circumstances make wickets all the sweeter.

  2. Maybe if you become a mid-level cricket media nonentity they will ley you have a Wikipedia page

  3. Are you suggesting that His Majesty’s seemingly self deprecating comment was in fact a brag that his status as a nonentity is marginal?
