The interview with journalist Charlotte Edwardes from a British newspaper took place in Bangalore, where Gayle has been playing with the Royal Challengers in the Indian Premier League.

The 36-year-old Jamaican said women enjoyed 'more than equality' and insisted his countrymen took a relaxed view about sex. The West Indies batsman said women threw themselves at him in thousands, explaining he was 'damn good-looking'.

On the subject of women, Gayle said women should have and did have equality.

"They have more than equality. Women can do what they want. Jamaican women are very vocal. They will let you know what time is it, for sure," he said.
He added, "Women should please their man," explaining, "When he comes home, food is on the table. Serious," although if she also works, 'they share' and it is down to the 'first person home'. Gayle has a baby daughter with Natasha Berridge, his girlfriend of 10 years.

He said he would change a nappy, but on cooking is a no and cleaning 'is not going to happen'. Gayle said Jamaicans were 'more relaxed about sex. We're not so hung up about it. This is what people like doing. It's no big deal'.
Asked if he threw himself at women, he sighed, "Your questions, you suck me dry."
