Chris-Gayle interview

Chris Gayle is drawing ire for his comments to a female reporter during a live interview after a Big Bash League game in Australia. Gayle asked Channel 10 presenter Mel McLaughlin out for a drink during a live interview after Melbourne Renegades‘ Big Bash League win over Hobart Hurricanes. The West Indian cricketer further added “Don’t Blush Baby” making the interviewer uncomfortable with his remarks that has been criticised by former England all-rounder and Channel 10 commentator Andrew Flintoff.

Chris Gayle made a whirlwind 41 in 15 balls to help Melbourne Renegades register a comfortable victory in the match.

Mel McLaughlin said to Gayle at the start of the interview: “You’re absolutely smashing this innings!”

Gayle, who is known for his antics, replied: “I wanted to come and have an interview with you as well.. That’s the reason why I’m here, just to see your eyes for the first time. It’s nice so ..“Hopefully we can win this game and have a drink after. Don’t blush baby.” The cricketer burst out in laughter after the comments leaving the interviewer clearly embarrassed.

The comments led to an onslaught of condemnation on social media. According to Australian media, David Barham, Channel 10 head of sport said, the network was “deeply offended” by Gayle’s comments and had conversations with Cricket Australia and had sought an apology.

Twitter has been trolling Chris Gayle but not all of it is criticism. There is some support for the star West Indian batsman too.

This is not the first time Gayle has been criticised for his sexist comments on female reporters during interviews.

In 2014, Chris Gayle who was captain of franchise Jamaica Tallawahs during the Caribbean Premier League was asked, “How does the pitch feel so far in terms of the training (and) the weather?,” by a female reporter. And in response he said to her, “Well I haven’t touched yours yet so I don’t know how it feels.”
