West Indies all-rounder Chris Gayle will miss the next two IPL matches (against Mumbai Indian on April 20 and against Rising Pune Supergiants on April 22) for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League as he has flown back to Jamaica to be with his partner Natasha Berridge, who is expecting their first child.

Sources close to RCB confirmed the news. “Chris flew back immediately after RCB’s last match (against Delhi Daredevils on April 17). We did not expect this. He got a call and flew back home,” the source said.
Gayle also wrote on his Instagram account to confirm the news, who many thought was just one of his usual funny statuses. “I’m on my way, Baby.”
