Team RC doing everything to retain Gayle: Sidhartha Mallya

Team Royal Challengers are leaving no stone unturned in its effort to retain the explosive Caribbean Chris Gayle for 2012 IPL. According to reports published, Sidhartha Mallya, director of Royal Challengers Sports Pvt. Ltd, said in an interview with ESPNcricinfo, “We are working on retaining Gayle and looking at every possible opportunity.”

Team Royal Challengers are leaving no stone unturned in its effort to retain the explosive Caribbean Chris Gayle for 2012 IPL. According to reports published, Sidhartha Mallya, director of Royal Challengers Sports Pvt. Ltd, said in an interview with ESPNcricinfo, “We are working on retaining Gayle and looking at every possible opportunity.”

Chris Gayle’s prolific form in the IPL 2011 helped Team RC reach the pinnacle of form to reach the finals. His explosive start at the beginning of the innings derailed most of Team RC’s opponents in the IPL this year. Gayle, however, was brought in as an injury replacement player. According to the report published, “Under current IPL rules, contracts for replacement players only include a year's participation, on the premise that the injured player will be available the following season. New replacement players without three-year contracts - Gayle, for example - must go into an auction where all the franchises would be able to bid for them.”

Mallya, however, assured that Team RC was in touch with the IPL management on retaining Gayle but any decision would be only reached after the Champions League T20 tournament in September. Gayle came in as a replacement for the injured Dirk Nannes but his term with the Team RC has already expired, according to the report.
