Royal Challengers Bangalore have signed Chris Gayle, former West Indies captain, for the next two IPL seasons.
Gayle joined RCB for the 2011 IPL as a replacement for Dirk Nannes. He was the recipient of the Orange Cap for being the highest scorer in IPL 2011. He also played for RCB in the CLT20 2011. He was a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the first three editions of the IPL.
“We are delighted to make Chris Gayle a permanent member of our IPL squad. He is one of the best batsmen in the world. His form helped us qualify for the final of the 2011 edition of the tournament. We are confident that with players like him in our side, we will take the extra step this season, and win our maiden IPL title,” Sidhartha Mallya, Director, Royal Challengers Sports Pvt Ltd, said.
“I had a great time representing RCB last year. It is a terrific outfit. The players are brilliant. They are complemented by the support-staff and administrators, all of whom have gone out of their way to make the players comfortable, and give them the freedom to express themselves on the field. To me, Bangalore has been a home away from home. I wanted to continue playing for them, and it turned out that they were keen to retain my services. I look forward to returning to namma Bangalore soon,” Chris Gayle said.
“Chris Gayle is one of those cricketers who was born to excel in all formats of the sport. He was at his destructive best in IPL 2011, and one can safely assume that we will see a lot more fireworks emanate from his blade, in the forthcoming IPL seasons,” Rajeev Shukla, Chairman, IPL, commented.
