Gayle’s last appearance on the big stage was in the recently-concluded IPL 2020, where he played for the Kings XI Punjab franchise. The 41-year-old made quite an impact and reminded everyone why he is still one of the best in this format of the game.
The Atlanta Param Veers side will be led by Rayad Emrit, who captained the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the CPL 2020. The side also boasts of some other West Indies T20 stars – pacer Kesrick Williams and all-rounder Fabian Allen.
The latest entrant into the fray of US cricket, Corey Anderson, will also get his first taste of cricket in the US, with the US Open T20.
