Instead, the release stated that Gayle’s departure was solely based on business decisions.The release further added that Gayle and his claims about Sarwan and others who he fingered for being responsible for his release, were untrue and that they are disappointed in the Jamaican for apparently going public with his views.When asked to comment on the entire situation, Miller declined saying, “The Tallawahs have issued a statement which is out there and No further comments will be made on this”. -declines comment on Gayle, Tallawahs heatlast_img
