Ramnaresh Sarwan denies Chris Gayle's allegations on ouster from Jamaica Tallawahs, says 'record must be set straight'- Firstcricket News, Firstpost

Ramnaresh Sarwan denies Chris Gayle’s allegations on ouster from Jamaica Tallawahs, says ‘record must be set straight’- Firstcricket News, Firstpost

Former West Indies cricketer and Jamaica Tallawahs assistant coach Ramnaresh Sarwan has dismissed all the allegations levelled by Chris Gayle.

The big-hitting Gayle blamed Sarwan for an alleged fallout with Tallawahs, who did not retain him for the 2020 season. The opener claimed that Sarwan was behind his ouster and wanted to take control of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise.

“I categorically deny any involvement in the decision, or the decision-making process, which led to Gayle’s non-selection to represent the Jamaica Tallawahs in the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Tournament,” Sarwan was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo on his Facebook page.

“In that video, he has levelled false allegations and tarnished the good name and reputation of a series of persons.

“I was the focus of most of the onslaughts. I reply, not because I feel that Gayle’s rantings are worthy of it, but because I feel that the public’s record must be set straight and also, to protect the character and careers of so many people, whose image he sought to besmirch,” he added.

In a video uploaded on his YouTube channel, Gayle had earlier referred to Sarwan as “a snake”.

Sarwan, in response, said that he respected Gayle but was utterly surprised by the Jamaican’s allegations.

“Let me make this abundantly clear that I played with Gayle since the inception of my career. I have always respected him as an extraordinary talent, a colleague and most importantly as a close friend. Hence, my utter shock at these allegations,” said Sarwan.

In a statement, Jamaica Tallawahs had also clarified that Sarwan had no role to play in Gayle’s ouster from the squad and added that the decision of not retaining Gayle for 2020 was based on “business and cricketing reasoning”.

Instagram is bringing new fonts to Stories - Latest News

Instagram is bringing new fonts to Stories – Latest News

Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram is set to bring new fonts to its Stories. This was announced by the company on Twitter, where it said that it is testing it with a small percentage of people.

“New fonts coming to Stories soon*

*We’re testing this with a small percentage of people. Stay tuned for updates,” reads the tweet.

The company did not reveal the percentage or the location of users it is testing these or when the feature is coming to everyone else.

Recently, it was reported that Instagram is soon going to add a memorialisation option for the account of someone who has passed away. This was discovered by reverse-engineer Jane Manchun Wong.

Replying to her tweet, the account of Instagram’s PR team confirmed that this feature is indeed in the works. “Yes, we’re making changes to help people identify if an Instagram account belongs to someone who has passed away. We’ll have more to share on this at a later time,” reads the tweet.

Recently, Instagram rolled out the web support for sending Direct Messages (DMs) along with supports for viewing Instagram Live videos.

The live video streaming happens in the same portrait mode — and in the same size — as it does on users’ smartphones. However, thanks to the bigger screen space, you get to see the comments on the side of the ongoing live video instead of how you see them at the bottom on a smartphone on a transparent window making the viewing experience a little better on the web.

“When Europe enacted the world’s toughest online privacy law nearly two years ago, it was heralded as a model to crack down on the invasive, data-hungry practices of the world’s largest technology companies. Now, the law is struggling to fulfill its promise. Europe’s rules have been a victim of a lack of enforcement, poor funding, limited staff resources and stalling tactics by the tech companies.” (The New York Times)
