Ten Network reporter Mel McLaughlin found herself being asked out for a drink during an interview with the burly opener after he blasted 41 runs off 15 balls for the Melbourne
Renegades in the Big Bash League (BBL) late Monday.
On air, Gayle said he was happy to be interviewed by McLaughlin 'just to see her eyes for the first time'.

"Nice, so hopefully we can win this game and we can have a drink after," he said. "Don't blush baby," the Jamaican added, prompting McLaughlin to shake her head and reply, "I'm not blushing”. "Sorry," he added, breaking into a big laugh.
Cricket Australia and Big Bash League officials did not see a funny side and condemned Gayle.
"I heard Chris's comments and they're disrespectful and simply inappropriate," BBL boss Anthony Everard said in a statement yesterday. "There's just no place in the BBL or, for that matter, cricket anywhere for that sort of behaviour,” he added.
Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland offered support for McLaughlin saying that no one should have to face such comments, which were 'completely out of line' and 'inappropriate for the workplace'.
The opener was even more apologetic on today morning, but tried to brush it off as a joke blown out of proportion. "There wasn't anything meant to be disrespectful or offensive to Mel. If she felt that way, I'm really sorry for that ," Gayle told reporters.
