As cleared up toward the start of today we trust its well while in go to a more key degree a social refinement, why he said it, and it was done playfully, paying little heed to it was dazzling and we've made this course of move."

Coventry said Gayle had "saw that his remarks were out of imprinting" and that while he was paralyzed by the $10,000 fine, he had taken it well.
"The club might need to grow a formal enlightenment of frustration to Mel McLaughlin," Coventry said. "Mel is a paramount beguilements go between. We consider her as exceedingly, and the club and players will promise we work with her in a power and cognizant course in future."
