Somerset could miss out on Chris Gayle

Somerset could be forced to sign a new overseas player following Chris Gayle's reported reconciliation with the West Indies cricket board.

Chris Gayle's proposed move to Somerset has been thrown into doubt following his apparent reonciliation with the West Indies cricket board.

The opening batsman agreed to become Somerset's overseas player for the domestic Twenty20 competition this season but director of cricket Brian Rose is now unsure whether he will appear for the county this season.

Rose told BBC Somerset: "I'm certainly hoping that within the next three to four days I'd get some sort of conclusive statement from the player or the West Indies board.

"I don't know what they are going to do, to be honest. I'm keeping my fingers and legs crossed at the moment, which I'm sure the public are as well."

Gayle has not played international cricket since December 2010.
