Swashbuckling West Indies batsman Chris Gayle officially opened the Kerala Cricket League 2015, the third edition of the tournament, in Dubai on Monday.

An ambassador for the league, Gayle kick-started the competition in his trade-mark style after getting into his batting gear and lofting the ball high into the stands, much to the delight of the nearly 2,000-strong spectators gathered at the Sevens Stadium.

Sixteen teams featuring UAE cricketing talent are taking part in the four-group league, which is managed by Seashell Events UAE and is being organised under the patronage of the Dubai Sports Council and the Dubai Cricket Council.

The opening ceremony was also attended by former Trinidadian cricketer Dinanath Ramnarine.
