Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) franchise Chattogram Challengers have announced that West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle will participate in the upcoming tournament.

"Chris Gayle has a hamstring niggle," ESPNcricinfo quoted Chattogram's managing director KM Rifatuzzaman, as saying. "He will need a bit of time to be completely fit. He was always going to play in the BPL and even though we will not have him for the entire campaign, he will be available in the latter part," he added.
