Chris Gayle raring to settle scores against England in ODI showdown

The West Indies batsman is fast approaching the end of his career but England are justifiably wary of his ability to push the boundaries as they prepare for the Ashes

The ODI circus has descended upon Bristol in the hope of reigniting the series against West Indies. The first match at Old Trafford was a cakewalk for England, the second at Nottingham was ruined by rain. The series needs a lift and the man most likely to provide it, Chris Gayle, is expected to be fit to play after tweaking his hamstring in Manchester. “He seems to be raring to go,” said his captain, Jason Holder. It is sometimes hard to tell with Gayle.

His presence in this series is to be welcomed. Gayle does look faintly ridiculous wrapped up in his sweaters, shambling the odd single between the sixes when batting and neatly plonking his foot on the ball in the field when he has been removed from his favoured position at first slip.

Chris Gayle: ‘You’re with men. You’re good-looking. What do you expect?’

West Indies star is used to defending himself but insists the sexism row over his interview with an Australian TV reporter was blown out of proportion

Chris Gayle doesn’t trust me but blunt honesty is preferable when, in exchange, he is fiercely concentrated during our hour together. The West Indies batsman is calm yet defiant, combative but wounded. Before we offer our contrasting opinions, when it feels right to tell Gayle his attitude towards women is wrong and for him to voice suspicion of “you people”, he warrants serious attention.

Earlier this year, before the World T20, the English cricket pundit Mark Nicholas dismissed Gayle and his team-mates. In a breathtakingly arrogant and nonsensical phrase, Nicholas wrote: “The West Indies are short of brains.”

Chris Gayle’s latest excruciating interview and his startling race remarks | The Spin

If Chris Gayle wants journalists to stop trying to undermine him, he should probably stop undermining himself

Chop, along with bogan, root, and one or two others, is an Australian word you may not know before you go, but will soon pick up after you get there. For the unfamiliar, Freddie Flintoff provided the perfect gloss back in January when he used it to describe Chris Gayle’s behaviour in his infamous interview – “Don’t blush baby” – with Channel Ten’s Mel McLaughlin. “Big fan of @henrygayle,” Flintoff wrote, “but made himself look a bit of a chop there.” So, no need to look it up in the Australian Dictionary of Slang the next time you hear it. Because it fits, in a way its loose English equivalents – prat, wally – wouldn’t quite. Flintoff always did have the happy knack of needling people with a telling word or two.

Chris Gayle could face more sexism allegations after latest interview

• West Indies batsman interviewed by the Times magazine
• Gayle was embroiled in a sexism row in Australia in January

Chris Gayle, the West Indies batsman, could face fresh allegations of sexism following lewd remarks made to a female journalist in an interview published by the Times this Saturday.

Gayle was widely condemned at the start of the year for asking reporter Mel McLaughlin out on a date on live television when playing in Australia’s Big Bash League, saying: “Your eyes are beautiful, hopefully we can win this game and then we can have a drink after as well. Don’t blush, baby.”
