West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy has been ruled out of the remainder of the One-Day International series in New Zealand while Chris Gayle will not feature in the upcoming Twenty20 International series.
Chris Gayle is set to return to international cricket after a 14-month absence after he was named in the West Indies' One-Day International squad ahead of the England series.
Gayle last featured for the West Indies in the 2011 World Cup, since when he was involved in disputes with the board over contractual issues and statements made in public.
A look back at the weekend action in the Indian Premier League 2011, which was dominated by the heroics of West Indian Chris Gayle, who blasted a century and then 44 in just 16 balls for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who won two out of two.
Chris Gayle has reaffirmed his desire to play for the West Indies, claiming he was 'forced' to make himself ineligible for the series with Pakistan in order to play in the Indian Premier League.
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) had earlier issued a statement expressing their disappointment that Gayle had travelled to India and ruled himself out of the forthcoming international matches.
