West Indian opener Chris Gayle has withdrawn from the Lanka Premier League (LPL), another player to back out of the tournament with a little over week from its commencement.

Gayle was drafted by the Kandy Tuskers franchise as one of their Marquee Overseas players, and while his confirmation has not yet been officially confirmed by the franchise or the event orgranisers, reports suggest that his withdrawal was due to personal reasons.

Lasith Malinga, meanwhile, has also withdrawn from the LPL due to a lack of preparation in the lead up to the tournament. 

Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, Malinga said, "Since the West Indies series early this year, I haven't had any cricket, and there hasn't been any training for me at all."
