Gayle's found himself a fan, anyway:
"Tait said he could not disagree with Gayle's statement as his playing future seems closely tied to the shorter forms of the game.
"It's a pretty big call coming from a Test captain, pretty amusing really, but I think he's probably spot-on," Tait said."
So can Tait get on the next flight and play IPL now or has his contract not yet run out?

I agree it's strange he's in there too, he doesn't seem to provide a lot to the team. But I wouldn't have Tait in there for him either. Given Tait's action requires him to do a lot of bowling for him to achieve a little bit of consistency, and every time he does a lot of bowling he breaks down it seems, I think the decision is a good one.

sources close to him said he was deeply disappointed and exploring a variety options to re-start his career. He had expressed a desire to come back for the latter stages of the IPL and has even discussed using his father's English heritage to secure a position in county cricket.
If he were to play in the county championship as a non-overseas player he's a de facto Pom, even if we can't call him up for 4 years after his last appearance for Australia.
In practice, of course, the chances of him playing for us are zero.

Contracts are like relationships. You are either in one or not. If someone breaks up with you then overnight you go from sleeping with them, to not being able to touch them. It is a considerable change in circumstance. Same with contracts. He was under contract, now he will not be. When he was under contract he was treated as everyone else was.
