Sydney: Chris GayleChris Gayle has been forced to pull out of South Africa's domestic Ram Slam T20 tournament because he would not recover in time from a torn hamstring that occurred during an ODI against India in November. Gayle has announced that he would not be travelling to Durban but instead would focus on making a return for West Indies' regional 50-over competition, which begins at the end of January.

This is the second time Gayle has withdrawn from the South African side, Dolphins, after a similar situation two seasons ago. "I am devastated not to be able to join up with the Sunfoil Dolphins this year," said Gayle in a statement released by Dolphins on Wednesday.

"It's the second time I have been unable to play with them because of injury so it's extremely frustrating."
