Gayle could return to Big Bash

Chris Gayle could return to Australia’s T20 league, with Cricket Australia saying the West Indian had not been blacklisted over a sexism scandal, reports said on Saturday.

Gayle made headlines in January when he attempted to flirt with television reporter Mel McLaughlin during a live interview.

On air, Gayle said he was happy to be speaking to McLaughlin “just to see your eyes for the first time” and suggested they go for a drink afterwards.

“Don’t blush baby,” the Jamaican told her in an exchange which led to him being fined by his Australian club Melbourne Renegades.

At the time, Cricket Australia’s James Sutherland said such comments were inappropriate in the workplace, adding that Gayle was not in a “night club”.
