Jan 30, 2020 | CN Staff |

Gayle Storm is certain to strike Nepal come March 14 as Twenty20 cricket's Universe Boss Chris Gayle has made himself available for the Everest Premier League.

Gayle will be playing for Pokhara Rhinos in what is so far the biggest Twenty20 competition of the One Day International nation which is now attracting big players from across the globe. With Gayle still getting his mojo going, the Jamaican now becomes the biggest name to play in Nepal.

A host of big names from around the world are now also associated with EPL with former South African skipper Hashim Amla already confirmed for the show. It, however, is not confirmed which side he will be playing for. Last season, Rhinos had also roped in another South African juggernaut Richard Levi who put his fierce hitting at display.

According to J4 Sports, the owners of Rhinos franchise, Gayle will arrive in Nepal on March 12 and will play matches according to the schedule prepared by his Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab. The glitzy Indian Premier League begins from March 29.

Having played all premier league competitions across the globe, Gayle has already amassed 404 Twenty20 matches to his name to add to his growing list of 301 one-dayers, 103 Tests and 58 Twenty20 Internationals.

Another West Indian cricket Dwayne Smith has also been confirmed to play for Bhairahawa Gladiators. Former Sri Lankan captain Upul Tharanga (Lalitpur Patriots) and Afghan hard hitter Mohammad Shahzad (Chitwan Tigers) are other foreign names announced for the tournament.
