Chris Gayle is a Jamaican cricketer who plays international cricket for the West Indies. He is one ofonly four players to score two triple centuries at Test level, and the first batsman in history to hit a double century at a World Cup competition and holds the record for the highest individual score in a T20 match.
Gayle is a great batsman, but has often found himself at odds with the West Indies team administrators, and has been reprimanded and dropped several times for his comments.
But it was during the Australian Big Bash competition in January 2016 where Gayle faced his strongest criticism. While being interviewed by Australian presenter Mel McLaughlin, Gayle said “hopefully we can win this game and we can have a drink after” followed by “Don’t blush, baby.” The sexist remarks were widely criticised in the media as sexist. Fellow journalist Neroli Meadows said Gayle had behaved this way for years and it was done to “humiliate” women.
In May 2016, The Times’ Charlotte Edwardes wrote that Gayle had made lewd remarks when she interviewed. Edwardes wrote that the batsman boasted about having a “very, very big bat, the biggest in the woooorld” and “You think you could life it? You’d need two hands.” Gayle also asked the journalist whether she had had sex with a black man and whether she’d had a threesome.
