Durban - The KwaZulu Natal Cricket (Pty) has announced the acquisition of another world-class cricketer, West Indian all-rounder, Chris Gayle.

According to the Dolphins' website, Gayle returns to Dolphins for the domestic T20 competition this season after his early departure in the 2011/12 season due to the injury.

The left-handed Gayle has blazed 5 752 runs in T20 cricket - the most by any batsman - at an average of 43.9 and a remarkable strike-rate of 151.84.

Gayle has a T20 top-score of 175 not out while he has hit 11 hundreds, also more than any other batsman, in the shortest format of the game.

Lance Klusener, coach of the Dolphins said, “I’m looking forward to having the biggest gun on the planet at our disposal”.

Commenting on returning to Dolphins, Gayle said, “‘I am really excited to have joined the Dolphins for their 2014 T20 campaign. I feel there’s some unfinished business for me as I didn’t get to play for them back in 2012 due to injury.

“They’ve got a great list of players so hopefully we’ll be in contention at the business end of the tournament. Am very much looking forward to working with Lance Klusener and the rest of the guys”, he added.

The 2014 domestic T20 tournament will run from January 8 to February 9.
