Is Chris Gayle disillusioned with cricket?The West Indies batting star, apart from hitting a century against England at the ICC World Twenty20, earlier this year, has done nothing much on the cricket field. He had a poor season with Indian Premier League runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore, managing only 227 runs from 10 matches.However, off the field the cricketer garnered a lot of attention with his recent media statements directed at female journalists. Starting from the infamous ‘Don’t blush, baby’ comment during an interview with Mel McLaughlin in the course of the Big Bash League to his recent interview with a Times reporter, where Gayle boasted about his ‘big bat’, the Jamaican has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.He was even slammed by former players and Cricket Australia for making the comments. Melbourne Renegades, his BBL franchise imposed a heavy fine and decided not to renew his contract. IPL authorities also took note of Gayle’s crude comments to Charoltte Edwardes and said action would be taken if a complaint was filed against him. ‘VICTIM OF DOUBLE STANDARDS’ The Caribbean star did not hold back. When responding to the sexism row surrounding him, he said he had been a victim of ‘double standards’.It seems the tired cricketer now wants to quit the game. GAYLE MULLING UNITED MOVE Gayle, who is now planning to take to football, has knocked the right doors, as well. In a social media post, Gayle said he had initiated discussions with the new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to become part of the club.advertisementGayle was obviously joking. He remains one of the most sought-after cricketers by T20 clubs around the world. He does not have a BBL contract anymore but he showed flashes of his brilliance in a few innings for RCB this season. At a time when Mourinho is looking to add more firepower to United’s armoury, Gayle’s signing could prove to a be a jackpot for the club. Having characters like Swedish star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is also widely rumoured to sign with the Red Devils, and Gayle in the same dressing room should be a treat for players and fans, alike.In a photo shared on Instagram, Gayle is seen wearing the famous red shirt and holding a red scarf outside the monumental Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester.The West Indies cricketer is currently in England, where he is playing in the Natwest T20 Blast for Somerset. Notably, Gayle smashed 328 runs in just three appearances last season.
