KINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC- Flamboyant opener Chris Gayle was yesterday expected to make his first competitive appearance since picking up a hamstring injury during a tour of India last November.

Gayle was down to take part in the first of two warm-up matches for Jamaica in preparationfor next week’s start of the West Indies CricketBoard (WICB) NAGICO Insurance Super50 in Trinidad and Tobago.

He returned from Australia last week where he underwent treatment and rehabilitation and was set to captain Jamaica against a Best of The Rest team at Sabina Park.

“Chris (Gayle) is back in training and should be part of the first practice match,” Jamaica head coach, Junior Bennett, told The Gleaner on Tuesday.

“The match will be the first of two for us during which time we are hoping to correct a few things ahead of the Super50 tournament.”

Jamaica are down to face title holders Windward Islands in the opening match of the Super50 at Queen’s Park Oval next week Thursday.

The Windwards and Jamaica have been drawn in Zone A of the eight-team tournament alongside Guyana and guest team Ireland.

Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Leeward Islands and Combined Campuses and Colleges will compete in Zone B.
