Mumbai: West Indies batsman Chris Gayle is expected to consult a specialist in Germany about a troublesome back problem, as he races to be fit ahead of his 100th Test in his hometown Jamaica next month.
The left-hander struggled throughout the recent Indian Premier League, managing just 196 runs at an average of 21 and a highest score of 46, and says he needs to get the injury issue resolved, reports CMC.
"It was tough. It (injury) happened just before IPL at the end of the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh. It became even worse later. I thought it was a simple thing when I went back, and then when I started training in the UAE it became difficult bending and sprinting between wickets. It was a problem, but I tried my best and missed first four games," the 34-year-old opener said at the launch of his own shoe brand, CG.
