West Indies opener and T20 superstar Chris Gayle remained non-committal when asked about taking part in next year's Indian Premier League for Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 37-year-old said that the decision is with RCB and admitted that there is still a cloud of uncertainty, hanging around player retention and how the auction will work, especially with the addition of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals.
In a Facebook live video hosted by Cricinfo, when asked about whether he will be retained by the Royal Challengers Bangalore ahead of IPL 2018, the West Indian opener said: "That will be up to them, to be honest. The auction will be open to any particular team but at the same time, RCB have been fantastic. To be associated with such a franchise, it has been brilliant. "You don't know what the rules will actually be when that time comes around as well. Hopefully, fingers crossed, you will see Gayle storm in the IPL."
The 11th edition of the Indian Premier League will see the return of both CSK and RR and also a bumper auction in which, wholesale changes are expected. Like most players, Gayle will be awaiting the rules for the same, with bated breath and hope to take part in the tournament.
