Storm brews around Gayle
The storm surrounding star cricketer Chris Gayle over an attempt to flirt with an Australian presenter intensified Wednesday as new allegations about his behaviour towards women emerged.
More female journalists aired complaints against the West Indian after he was fined USD 7,000 on Tuesday for his approach to reporter Mel McLaughlin.
Gayle apologised and tried to brush off the exchange with McLaughlin as a harmless joke. However, he may be facing expulsion from Australia's Big Bash League if some of the other claims are substantiated. But his team, Melbourne Renegades say he will still play.
Fox Sports reporter Neroli Meadows branded the Jamaican a "creep".
“He does this constantly," she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "He's a creep, he has creepy behaviour."
Nine News reporter Yvonne Sampson also claimed that Gayle had asked her out on a date after watching her carry out an interview.
