Party, the Gayle way

It’s party time in Guyana

It’s party time in Guyana. West Indies captain Chris Gayle turned 31 on September 21 and he plans to celebrate it, in style poolside at the Tower Hotel in Guyana over the weekend. It promises to be the ultimate Caribbean party – or, as the organisers call it, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” (Featuring Peter Ram & Black Rhyno). “I always wanted to do something different for my special day, plus my son is in Guyana and he always wanted me to come spend sometime with his family,” Gayle told the website The organisers say several West Indian cricketers are likely to attend the bash and Gayle is likely to be in entertainer mode - singing as well as deejaying. The cost of attending? A cool 5000 Guyanese dollars (US$24.31).
