Chris Gayle may return to Australia’s Big Bash, despite sexism controversy

West Indies batsman Chris Gayle could re-sign for Melbourne Renegades in Australia’s Big Bash, despite last season’s sexism controversy.

36 year old Gayle, was fined by the club in January, after asking journalist Mel McLaughlin for a date during a live interview, saying: “Don’t blush, baby.”

The Renegades described the comments as “completely inappropriate and disrespectful” and fined him £4,900.

Gayle, part of the West Indies team who won the World Twenty20 in April, later apologized but said the reaction was “out of proportion” after former players and Cricket Australia condemned his remarks.
