Chris Gayle's injury not serious
West Indies batsman Chris Gayle has been cleared of serious injury after undergoing scans.
Gayle has been cleared of serious injury after undergoing scans following Western Australia's Big Bash loss to South Australia Redbacks.
Gayle injured a muscle on his left side in just the second over of what proved a disappointing Warriors run chase as they lost by 29 runs in the twenty20 contest.
Despite playing in obvious distress, Gayle continued to produce some trademark big hits before being forced to retire hurt on 40.
Having iced the injury, the star import came out to the crease once more, but only faced a further four balls before losing his wicket to Shaun Tait for 44 off 24 balls.
The 30-year-old was reportedly in significant distress after the match, however, and Warriors fans and officials feared he may have torn a muscle, forcing him out of the entire competition.
But the Western Australian Cricket Association announced on Wednesday that scans have indicated Gayle has merely suffered a muscle strain, meaning he should be available to play against New South Wales next Tuesday after missing the New Year's Day clash with Tasmania.
