Strewth mate, that one backfired!

West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle, 36, decided to ask a journalist out on a date when being interviewed during a cricket game in Hobart, Australia… and his flirtatious comments have landed him in the shit!

It’s been reported by BBC News that the star has been fined $10,000 (AUD) by his club the Melbourne Renegades for ‘inappropriate conduct’- now that’s a real Aussie stinger!

Instead of discussing his impressive performance, here’s what the horny batsman had to say:

“I wanted to come and have an interview with you as well. To see your eyes for the first time is nice. Hopefully we can have a drink afterwards. Don’t blush baby.”

The unimpressed Mel McLaughlin responded saying “You’re not making me blush.”

Well said McLaughlin! Here’s to girl power!
