A great signing for the already strong Somerset team, also good news for Cricket Collectables, West Indian left hand batsman Chris Gale (Captain 2007-10)  with 13 Twenty 20 centuries under his belt has signed for Somerset to play 6 matches this year in the Nat West T20s Gale is a charismatic and entertaining player highly regarded in world cricket, he has played in 103 Test matches, 268 one-day internationals and 45 T20’s for the West Indies since his debut in 1999. He has played 8 County Cricket for Worcestershire in 2005, ironically Worcestershire were relegated after Gayle made only one run in the final match against Lancashire.

Cricket Collectables currently have 2 signed cricket bats autographed by Gale we hope to add to this throughout the coming season

The timing of the move depends on his home team Royal Challengers Bangladore and there progression through the Indian league, it is hoped that Chris Gayle will make his Somerset debut at Taunton against Sussex on 22 May, or at latest the following week against Essex at the County ground Chelmsford.

Gayle is the third Somerset signing for this seasons Twenty 20 , with Pakistan left arm seamer Sohail Tanvir having joining the team for the first half of the competition later to replaced by Kiwi Corey Anderson. Tanvir is an experienced international cricketer having played for Surrey in 2009 and Hampshire in 2013.

Cricket memorabilia is always popular when associated with Somerset CC, in this case more so, we look forward to the coming season and big things from Taunton.
