West Indies management knew of player misbehaviour during 2015 World Cup: Report

New Delhi: The Chris Gayle controversy fails to subside with another report claiming that West Indies team management knew of misbehaviour by their players towards a woman during the 2015 ICC World Cup in Australia.

Ever since Gayle's inappropriate comments to Mel McLaughlin hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons, cricket world has suddenly became a sexist ground with many questioning the behaviour of celebrated West Indies opener.

In fact, the left-handed batsman had allegedly expose himself to an Australian woman during last year's World Cup, which the cricketer denied.

In the midst, another report in 'Sydney Morning Herald' on Friday claimed that there was an e-mail written during the World Cup by West Indies team manager Richie Richardson asking his players "to treat her in a professional and respectable way".

By the turn of unfolding events, it certainly looks a part of the narrative vis-a-vis Gayle's indulgence.

Even as Chris Gayle filed a defamation case against a media house for allegations that he indecently exposed himself to a lady last year, an email has emerged hinting the West Indies team management knew of misbehaviour by players towards a woman during the 2015 World Cup here.

The development comes a day after Gayle sought the services of a leading Australian lawyer to start defamation proceedings against Fairfax Media over allegations that he indecently exposed himself to a woman in Sydney during last year's World Cup.

A report in 'Sydney Morning Herald' today claimed that there was an e-mail written during the 2015 World Cup by West Indies team manager Richie Richardson asking his players "to treat her in a professional and respectable way".

"In the past few days, **** **** has encountered a few uncomfortable situations with members of the team. Please, at all times, treat her in a professional and respectable way," Richardson, who has been the team manager since then, stated, according to 'Sydney Morning Herald'.

Gayle is facing severe criticism for making inappropriate comments to Channel 10's female television presenter McLaughlin during a live interview while playing for Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League early this week.
