Sydney - Chris Gayle responded to Brad Haddin's criticism of his form in Australia's Twenty20 Big Bash tournament with a barb of his own, saying he's a better batsman than the ex-Test wicketkeeper even on his non-preferred side.

A key player in the West Indies World T20 title triumph, Gayle has scored 70 runs in five matches this season for Sydney Thunder, which lost to Haddin's Sydney Sixes on Sunday.

Haddin suggested in a television interview after he was dismissed by Gayle that Thunder fans weren't getting value for money from their star import.

The tall, left-handed Jamaican batsman responded via Twitter on Monday, advising Haddin to "stop watch my money and watch himself!!"

"Not my fault he ain't good as I am even if I bat right hand!!!"

The tweets had been removed by late on Monday.
