Sleazy Cricket Player Asks Reporter On Date During Interview
There's a thing in Australia called The Big Bash League, a 20Twenty cricket tournament among eight Australian city-based teams which I would know nothing about except for this story. Chris Gayle of the Melbourne Renegades was being interviewed by Ten Sport's Melanie McLaughlin when this happened:
Gayle: "To see your eyes for the first time is nice. Hopefully we can have a drink afterwards. Don't blush, baby."

The BBL then issued this statement:
"I heard Chris' comments and they're disrespectful and simply inappropriate. We'll certainly be talking to him and the Renegades about it. This league is all about its appeal to kids, families and females. There's just no place in the BBL — or, for that matter, cricket anywhere — for that sort of behavior."
For her part, McLaughlin defended the wicket (is that a thing?) deftly. Swing and miss for Gayle.
