    Australian newspapers lose Chris Gayle masseuse defamation appeal

    An Australian media group on Tuesday lost an appeal against an Aus$300,000 (US$211,000) defamation payout to West Indies cricket star Chris Gayle after claiming he exposed his genitals to a masseuse.

    Gayle was accused by former media group Fairfax, which at the time was publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, of exposing his penis and indecently propositioning the woman in a dressing room during the 2015 World Cup in Sydney.

    Gayle vigorously denied the allegations, claiming the journalists behind the series of stories published in the newspapers in 2016 were out to "destroy him".

    He won the defamation case in October last year after jurors found Fairfax was motivated by malice and had failed to establish a defence of truth.

    The publisher appealed the case arguing it did not receive a fair trial and the judge should have discharged the jury after Gayle’s barrister attacked the credibility of the massage therapist.

    Gayle also appealed the size of his payout, seeking an increase.

    A New South Wales court dismissed both appeals.

    Gayle caused a stir in Australia in 2016 prior to the Fairfax stories being published when he attempted to flirt with a presenter on live TV, asking her out for a drink and telling her: "Don't blush, baby."

    After winning his court case last year, he tried to spark a bidding war for a tell-all interview, promising that "when I break this down to y'all it will be like a movie".

    "Biding (sic) starts at US$300K for this interview! So much to say & I will!" he tweeted to his then 3.75 million followers.

    Fairfax newspapers are now owned by commercial broadcaster Nine Entertainment, which purchased the media company last year.

    Gayle is the greatest T20 player of all time. I rate him higher than ABD (T20 only).

    However, big man needs to retire now. He is finished.

    Adios Gayle in ODIs!!

    What a fantastic last match he had. Played a signature Gayle innings in his very last match. Wonder what the similar type of batsmen did in their last innings ( Jayasuriya, Gilchrist, Afridi as opener)

    Chris Gayle has denied having played his final ODI for West Indies, hours after walking off the park at Port of Spain with a raised bat to all corners of the stadium following his dismissal for 72 off 41 balls.

    Once he slapped a ball from India left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed towards mid-off where Virat Kohli took a sharp catch, Gayle shook hands with the Indian team and then acknowledged the cheers from the fans with his helmet perched on his bat handle. When Gayle reached the steps of the West Indies pavilion, he was greeted by his standing team-mates.

    Adding further speculation to the third ODI between West Indies and India being his last was the fact that the back of Gayle’s jersey had the number 301 imprinted on it, in recognition of this being his 301st ODI.

    But after the game – which India won by six wickets – Gayle revealed in a video clip that he had not called time in his ODI career.

    “I didn’t announce any retirement,” said the 39-year-old with a smile.

    Asked if he was still available to play for West Indies, he replied: “Yeah, until further notice”.

    During the post-match press conference, not aware that Gayle had told West Indies Cricket he had not retired, Kohli congratulated the Jamaican on his career.

    “Chris, I would like to congratulate him for a great, great career playing for West Indies,” Kohli said. “He has done so much for West Indies cricket, and he is an icon all over the world.

    “One of the nicest human beings around. That to me is his nicest quality. Everyone knows about his cricket, but I think the kind of person he is – so helpful with youngsters and so fun loving and always smiling, even in the most [high] pressure situations he is always smiling. For me Chris Gayle the person is the best part of him. The cricket everyone knows.

    I have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with him as a friend and get to know him as a person – he is a gem of a human being. I think he can be really proud of that firstly.”

    Before the 2019 World Cup, Gayle had said that the tournament would be his last appearance. He then took a u-turn on that decision, saying that he was open to playing ODIs and Tests.

    Gayle has played 298 of his 301 ODIs for West Indies. From those 298 ODIs, Gayle has 10,405 runs which is the most for a West Indies batsman.

    He broke Brian Lara’s record during the second match against India, which was his 300th ODI – the most for a West Indies player.

    West Indies batsman Chris Gayle will play for Pokhahra Rhinos team in Nepal’s domestic T20 tournament, Everest Premier League, which begins from February 29 in Kathmandu.

    The 40-year-old Gayle, who is nicknamed ‘Universe Boss’ and has now become a freelance T20 player, announced his decision in a Twitter message.

    “I will be visiting Nepal for the biggest sporting event, the Everest Premier League. Come and support my team Pokhara Rhinos and be part of a magnificent cricket fiesta. Nepal, get ready for the Gayle storm,” he said in his inimitable style in a Twitter post of the league organisers.

    The organisers of the league also confirmed the development in a post on its official Twitter handle.

    “Nepal, the forecast for March is Stormy! @Henrygayle has confirmed to play in the @eplt20official for @pokhararhinos! Are you ready for the Gayle Storm?” the post read.

    Gayle is yet to officially announce his retirement from international cricket. He last played for West Indies in what was expected to be his “farewell” game in the third ODI in Port-of-Spain against India in August last year.

    His last T20I was in March 2019 against England in Basseterre. He has not played a Test since 2014.

    Gayle’s last action in a franchise-based cricket was in Bangladesh Premier League for Chattogram Challengers earlier this month.

    The St Lucia Zouks have signed Chris Gayle as their marquee player for the 2020 Hero Caribbean Premier League. Gayle has played for the Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots in the past. He has won the CPL title twice with the Tallawahs and played in the final with the Patriots in 2017.

    Gayle is the leading T20 run scorer of all time as well as the man with the most centuries in the format. He is also the leading CPL run scorer of all time, having made 2,344 runs at the tournament.

    Commenting on Gayle arriving at the Zouks, captain Daren Sammy said: “This is great news for St Lucia Zouks and for me as a captain to have the universe boss on my side. Chris is one of the most successful T20 batsmen in the world and with his experience with our young openers, a lot can be learnt from Chris.

    “I welcome him to the Zouks Franchise. Chris will be in St Lucia and the fans will be happy that Jamaica has released him. I will have a motivated Chris Gayle looking to prove a point that he is one of the leading T20 batsmen in the world. I can’t wait for CPL 2020 and hopefully the Coronavirus will be under control and we can have an exciting T20 tournament. Welcome home Chris Gayle!”

    Coach Andy Flower also shared his thoughts, saying: “It’s brilliant news that we have been able to get Chris Gayle with us at this year’s CPL 2020. I have got a long association with Chris running all the way back to his debut Test match in Trinidad back in 2000. I’ve seen his exploits in all three forms of the game and I am really looking forward to working with him and Daren Sammy toward a special year for St Lucia cricket.”

    The CPL is scheduled to take place between 19 August and 26 September but the tournament organisers are currently watching the current situation with COVID-19 closely and are liaising with medical advisors and governments.

    West Indies superstar Chris Gayle has lambasted former teammate Ramnaresh Sarwan, calling him ‘worse than coronavirus’ for the alleged role played in his exit from Caribbean Premier League (CPL) team Jamaica Tallawahs.

    Gayle said he hoped to end his career with the Talllawahs after signing a three-year contract ahead of the last season.

    However, his plans changed after the franchise decided against retaining him before he was signed by St Lucia Zouks as a marquee player.

    “Sarwan, you are worse than the coronavirus right now,” Gayle said in a video posted on YouTube. “What transpired with the Tallahwahs, you had a big part to play. Sarwan, you were the one who gave a big speech on my birthday party about how far we have come. Sarwan, you are a snake. You know, you are not the most loved person in the Caribbean. You are so vindictive, you are still immature, you are back-stabbing.”

    “In everybody’s eyes, you acted as if you were this saint, this good person…. Sarwan, you’re evil, you’re wicked, you’re poison. You let a thing like this transpire,” he added.

    The 40-year-old also claimed that Sarwan, an assistant coach at Tallawahs, was highly unpopular among the players including captain Andre Russell. “When I left Jamaica Tallawahs, that team was a high-spirited team. (But) the amount of complaints I used to get when I wasn’t there, the amount of problems they had with Sarwan – Russell was the captain at that time – the amount of problem that Sarwan and the captain have…so many players were traumatised because of Sarwan,” Gayle said.

    Gayle said Sarwan wanted to be the head coach, something which he advised him against. “I told Sarwan directly that ‘Sarwan, you have no experience being a head coach. It is not an easy job,” he said.
