Chris Gayle, who is one of the flashiest cricketers of this era, has been in a soup for his comments at a female commentator during a Big Bash League match presentations.
Chris Gayle’s team Melbourne Renegades had just won their match over Hobart Hurricanes, when Gayle was asked for his comments by Network Ten journalist Mel McLaughlin. Gayle reportedly replied saying, “I just wanted to have an interview with you as well, that’s why I batted so well. Your eyes are beautiful, hopefully we can have a drink. Don’t blush baby’.
Anthony Everard, the Head of the Big Bash League, replied on Twitter that Gayle’s comments were disrespectful and inappropriate.

Gayle has since said that his comments have been blown out of proportion, and there was no offence meant.
