What he said:
“"I can categorically say we won’t be paying Chris Gayle one quarter of our salary to come and play."
Sydney Sixers general manager, Stuart Clark, makes it clear that it is unlikely that his side will spend a quarter of a million dollars on the West Indian opener for the Big Bash league. Each side is restricted to a salary cap of one million Australian dollars.
What he really meant:
“We can’t afford free agents like Chris Gayle—not at those prices. Our focus is local.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“We’re discriminating against Chris.”
