Chris Gayles book Six Machine out in June

first_imgNew Delhi, Mar 11 (PTI) In a totally different game, West Indies cricket legend Chris Gayle will tell the inspiring story of his life from being a shy, skinny kid from a tin-roofed shack in the back streets of Kingston, stealing empty bottles to buy food, to becoming one of the most destructive batsmen in world.Gayles memoirs “Six Machine: I Dont Like Cricket… I Love It,” published by Penguin Random House, will be released around the world on June 2.Gayle is really excited about his first book.”I hope it can reach far and wide, through cricket and beyond, for there are stories to tell and secrets Ive waited a long time to share. Being me is fun. I dont believe in boring. And Six Machine is me, in every way,” he says.The book will be written with Tom Fordyce, chief BBC sports writer.Viking acquired world rights from David Luxton at DLA for “Six Machine: I Dont Like Cricket… I Love It”.Joel Rickett, publisher of Viking at Penguin Random House, says: “Chris Gayle is one of the standout characters in an increasingly bland sporting world. Like the man himself, Six Machine is outrageous and utterly original. The only Comparison I can make is to I Am Zlatan by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and I think weve got a similar sensation on our hands.”According to the publishers, “Six Machine” is a story not just of sporting genius but of battling prejudice; of coming from nothing to everything and yet not losing yourself along the way.
