West Indies stalwart Chris Gayle has joined team Abu Dhabi for T10 League. The fans really missed him in the previous season. On Saturday, Abu Dhabi announced that they have signed Chris Gayle and he will be the icon player for the tournament. 

This year is the fourth edition of the T10 tournament. Prior to previous season, Gayle played for the team Kerala Knights in 2018 where he scored 81 runs in five matches.

Chris Gayle is considered as one of the greatest batsmen of all time. In the Indian Premier League 2020 which was played in UAE, the player performed really well in the tournament. He scored three half centuries in the tournament. He played for Kings XI Punjab team in 2020 season. 


Gayle is a Jamaican player and plays cricket for team West Indies. Gayle has made number of records in cricket to his name. Chris Gayle is only player to score a triplet of centuries, a hundred in T20Is, a double hundred in ODIs and a triple hundred in Tests. He has scored over 16584 runs in his cricket career. He has also hit 1001 sixes and 22 centuries in his T20 career.


Chris Gayle will play with some great players in the team Abu Dhabi such as Luke Wright, Hayden Walsh, Rohan Mustafa, and Avishka Fernando. Abu Dhabi has never won the title in previous three seasons, so they are really hoping to get the trophy home this year. Signing Gayle in the team has really set their hopes high and it will also be a pressure on Gayle too to perform well in the league. 

The tournament is all set to start from 28th January and the finals will be on 6th February. All the matches of the league will be played at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Another team in the league, Lahore Qalandars, have also signed the great Shahid Afridi as their icon player. It would be delightful to watch such a great player perform in the tournament.

What do you think? Is signing Chris Gayle will get the trophy for team Abu Dhabi?
