I look forward to some serious retractions (and apologies) by media - K Underwood of Back Page fame springs to mind. I recall her position at the time was so untenable it had me posting - let alone with the benefit of hindsight where where Gayle has proved his case.
Law 31.6 - benefit of the doubt for an dismissal appeal goes to the batsman
A third umpire call for a run out or stumping is a referral, not a review.

The claims by Fairfax Media were not true, a jury in Sydney ruled on Monday.

Gayle doesn't seem to be the type who would be screwing around.
