DANGER MAN: Star Chris Gayle. Photo: Jack Lestrade

Newlands get ready for a Gayle force when Cape Town Blitz host the Jozi Stars at Newlands in the MSL on Tuesday night.

West Indian power hitter Chris Gayle is back for the Stars after playing for the Kerala Knights in the Super League in Pakistan.

While Gayle was gone, it was Proteas ace Reeza Hendricks who starred for the Stars, with back-to-back hundreds against Durban Heat and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants on the weekend.

And now Gayle is hoping to get his team off to a good start next to Hendricks.

Gayle explains: “I would love Hendricks to make it three in a row.

“Given the chance to open the batting with him will be something nice.

“With his form, he can actually take a bit of pressure off of me.

“You guys keep mentioning my name, but it’s Hendricks that you should actually be wary of.”
